Bob Dylan

Poet and singer, Bob Dylan rose out of the 1960’s folk scene to become one of the top spokesmen of the time for the downtrodden and wronged. His songs have been performed and recorded by many artists over the years.
Mocked by my parents who said he couldn’t sing, he was one of my favorite artists and got the most play on my record player. They just couldn’t grasp that the message was in the words, not the nasal resonance.
I would play my guitar and sing along but they would only ask why I played such depressing songs. Sheesh!
Starting off tonight with a number of songs from the mid 60’s, we will then move on to performances from the 1976 Rolling Thunder Review tour.
After that we explore progressively newer performances finishing with collaborations between Bob and other popular artists.
