Bob Dylan turns 76 on May 24th and he’ll be celebrated in song and spirit at the 12th Annual Bob Dylan Birthday Concert on Saturday, May 20, at 7:00 pm, at the Old Town Center for the Arts in Cottonwood.
No, Bob may not be there, but this year’s program once again features some of the best musicians in the area. And of course, concert series founder, Joe Neri, who shares the same birthday as Dylan.
This year’s “Bob Bash” features Larry & Leslie Latour, Tyler Barrett, William Eaton, Tim Young, Gary Simpkins and Mike McReynolds, all performing acoustically. Local poet, Gary Every, will speak about the Nobel Prize. And, of course, the popular Mystery Tramps, the electric band of Joe Neri, Gregg Gould, Erika Wsulkowski, Hutch Hutchinson and Matt Fabritz, will rock the house.
Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature on December 10, 2016, and he and his music will be honored right here in Arizona at the 12th Annual Bob Dylan Birthday Concert. Get your tickets early for this historically sell out event.
Dylan fans have known for decades that the songs and music of Robert Zimmerman have transcended what songs and music have always been, that they were poetry and commentary and more, and have endured with meaning for over half a century. The Swedish Academy honored Bob Dylan with its prestigious prize “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”
“This concert has become a tradition for the Verde Valley and Sedona,” remarked William Eaton, co-director at Old Town Center for the Arts. “Each year there are some surprises along with some of your favorite Dylan tunes. Joe has done a fantastic job of producing this event.”
You’re invited and get your tickets early for this sell-out event. Come on out and help celebrate the music that is Bob Dylan. Dylan was unable to personally attend the award ceremony in Stockholm. Who knows? ... maybe he’ll stop by to party with us.
