Her most recently released CD on Kristalyn Records, Hard Rain, has won the Broadway World Award for best Cabaret CD 2014 alongside garnering 4 and 5 star reviews worldwide, and Jungr is shortlisted as Best Vocalist by the London Cabaret Awards 2015. In this performance she will be accompanied by pianist Jenny Carr

The CD, Chansons The Space Inbetween, was recorded by Linn records in 1999 and released in May 2000. It continues to sell all over the world and Jungr is often requested to revisit these songs. This year she will premier them anew at Ventnor Arts Club for the Arts Festival.

Tickets on sale now via or at Ventnor Exchange.
