50th Anniversary Concert
July 2012, Music
Over 50 years, 47 albums and more than 500 songs ago Bob Dylan released his debut album. Since then, endless artists, writers and musicians have been inspired by this musical legend.
Signed by Columbia Records in 1962 by legendary producer/A&R man John Hammond (Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Count Basie, Aretha Franklin, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen), Bob Dylan seemed so ‘left of field’ that he was initially derided as “Hammond’s folly”.
Now, to celebrate his 50th anniversary as a recording artist, five of Australia’s distinctive 21st Century performers will join forces to honour this remarkable legacy with their own unique voices: multi-platinum troubadour JOSH PYKE, Eskimo Joe front man KAV TEMPERLEY, Jebediah pop veteran KEVIN MITCHELL (aka Bob Evans), singer-songwriter HOLLY THROSBY and The Grates’ powerhouse vocalist PATIENCE HODGSON.
With a stellar rock ensemble under the musical direction of guitarist ASH NAYLOR the inaugural BOB DYLAN NIGHT will showcase some of the greatest works from the maestro’s sprawling songbook for an evening of inspiration and creation with the highest musical integrity.
