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.
The “The Band” Band, the acclaimed tribute to The Band and a MCOH favorite known for their annual and lively celebration of The Last Waltz, will once again return for a summer show to celebrate the music of Bob Dylan. The show will include songs from Dylan’s early folk days in Greenwich Village NY, his breakout into rock and roll after “going electric” in 1965, his legendary partnership with The Band through the late sixties and early seventies, and beyond.
From the hit songs “Like A Rolling Stone,” “Just Like A Woman,” “Forever Young,” and “All Along the Watchtower” to deep cuts from his ground-breaking albums Blonde On Blonde and Nashville Skyline, to his mysterious collaboration with The Band, The Basement Tapes, Bob Dylan’s music is a cornerstone of the soundtrack of his generation. Don’t miss this special show honoring one of the most beloved songwriters of our time!
