About this Act

Jillian Winter possesses an incredible voice and her delivery of the Barbra Streisand songbook has held audiences spellbound, not just for the power and control she has, but also the sensitivity and emotion that she portrays when singing this material. Each song is presented as a story, and she lives and breathes each nuance. She has long been an admirer of Barbra Streisand and friends started to remark on how much she sang like her, and even looked a bit like her.

Jillian covers a wide range of the Streisand songbook material from early New-York nightclubs of the 60s, through to musicals, films, and popular recordings. She can perform as a 2-piece lineup (vocalist plus piano accompaniment) up to a four piece backing band which includes a violinist who has played for Barbara in the States.  

Over the last couple of years she has researched a wide range of songs made famous by Streisand and has incorporated the best of these into an act that is a true and heartfelt tribute to one of the greatest singers of the last and this century.
