Dylan music blowin’ in Rochester’s wind
If you’re yearning “to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,” then the annual Bob Dylan Birthday Tribute Concert will tickle your toes and fingertips. More than twenty local performers will be “tangled up in blue,” paying homage to one of Minnesota’s most majestic musicians this Friday at the Castle as he turns 78.
This is the fourth year area music makers have celebrated Bob Dylan’s birthday by performing his music. Jeremy Jewell and his band mate from Hair of the Dog, Tracy Sonnier, chose the now-closed Doggery as the initial venue for the celebration. “I just think it’s cool to have a bunch of Minnesotan musicians get together for a night and pay tribute to what I consider our state’s biggest treasure,” Jewell says.
