Never miss another 'Mari Wilson' show
Mari Wilson + Barb Jungr

Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early '80s with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations! With hit singles including 'Just What I've Always Wanted' and 'Cry Me A River', Mari's live shows were a real event. Her recent work covers a much wider range including the starring role in the musical 'Dusty'.
One of the best live performers in the country, Mari brings a unique style of glamour and storytelling, and great songs.
'Wilson is not one for scripted repartee between songs: one gets the impression that she is happy to talk just enough to drive the evening towards the next song. Which, when the singing is as good as this, is understandable' (Scott Matthewman, Musical Theatre Review).
Mari Wilson tour dates
Best known for her re-creation of the magic of the Parisian cabaret scene in a contemporary setting with modern translations of Brel, Piaf, Ferr, Harburgh and Cole Porter. She has also set the songs of Bob Dylan and Nina Simone to new and beautifully crafted arrangements. In the UK and New York she plays to packed houses and was recently heralded in a feature about her work in the New York Times.
'To turn down an invitation to see Barb Jungr perform live is to miss out on a revelatory and uplifting experience' (The Guardian)
'On stage she's a lioness' (The Sydney Morning Herald)
'The most literate of singers, Jungr is the perfect interpreter of this kind of material' (The Times)
'Possibly our best interpreter of Dylan's songs' (Billy Bragg).
