Barb Jungr live from the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh - Three Weeks

Although Jungr claims that 'If it's good enough for Nina, it's good enough for me', this is far from your usual tribute act. She doesn't dress like Simone, or sing exactly like Simone, or attempt to imitate her in any way, but instead brings her own magic to classics such as 'Feeling Good', 'I Put A Spell On You', and 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood'. Jungr's phenomenal stage presence, her witty banter between songs, and her voice, entrancing enough to make you shiver, was so compelling that I couldn't take my eyes from the stage for the whole performance - and it wasn't just because of her rather fluorescent orange shawl. All in all, this was a flawless performance which made for a perfectly enchanting evening.
