Barb JungrOver a hundred music fans were treated to a memorable night of live Linn music at a special invite-only event hosted by Chelsea-based Klimax Specialist 1st Stop Audio Visual and supported by our very own Gilad Tiefenbrun.

Held at Royal Festival Hall in London, guests enjoyed a champagne reception and an intimate performance from Barb Jungr, described as 'the foremost interpreter of Bob Dylan's back catalogue' (The Independent).

Audience enjoying Barb Jungr
With 'Man In The Long Black Coat' recently released to celebrate Dylan's 70th birthday, Barb delivered a mesmerising set from her current tour, with the Thames and Big Ben providing a spectacular backdrop as the sun set.

Barb opened the show with 'Tangled Up In Blue', accompanied throughout by Jenny Carr on piano, and delighted the audience with favourites such as 'I'll Be Your Baby Tonight' and her intelligent 5/4 arrangement of 'The Times They Are A-Changin'.

Live Q&A with Gilad

Gilad quizes Barb
In a Q&A session with the audience, led by Linn MD Gilad Tiefenbrun, Barb shared her considerable insight into Dylan's work and her hopes that he has heard her interpretations (e-mails from Dylan's publisher suggest that he has...and that he approves!).

With stories and song introductions typically peppered with Barb's Northern wit, the light-hearted banter provided a stark contrast to the often uncompromisingly harsh lyrics of Dylan songs such as 'It Ain't Me Babe'.

'Forever Young' provided the audience with the opportunity to flex their own vocal muscles as Barb built the set towards a climax with a spine-tingling rendition of 'With God On Our Side', which brought the room to its feet for a well-deserved standing ovation.

With Linn's finest music system playing 24-bit Studio Masters before and after her set, Linn owners and newcomers alike were able to hear and compare Barb's breathtaking performance with the very next best thing, a Linn Klimax System playing Studio Masters from Linn Records.
