There is perhaps no more influential, profound, successful, or enigmatic songwriter in history than Bob Dylan. From the “protest songs” of his early years to his introspective, sometimes caustic commentary on love and humanity, his songs have become an integral part of Americana, and have garnered countless awards and honors around the world. In 2016, he added the Nobel prize for literature to his dossier.
The THE BAND Band, the acclaimed tribute to The Band and a MCOH favorite known for their annual celebration of The Last Waltz, will return for a summer show to celebrate the music of Bob Dylan, performing songs from his folk days in Greenwich Village, NY, his breakout into rock and roll after “going electric” in 1965, his celebrated partnership with The Band through the late sixties and early seventies, and beyond.
From the hit songs “Like A Rolling Stone,” “Lay Lady Lay,” and “Just Like A Woman” to deep cuts from his ground-breaking albums Blonde On Blonde, Nashville Skyline, and New Morning, to The Basement Tapes, his mysterious collaboration with The Band, Dylan’s music was a cornerstone of the soundtrack of his generation.
The music of Neil Young, a friend to both Dylan and The Band, will be celebrated by Norm Vincent, who also performs his rendition of “Helpless” with The THE BAND Band at their Last Waltz shows.
Don’t miss this special show honoring two of the most beloved songwriters of our time.
