Bob Dylan Birthday Concert
Come gather 'round people wherever you roam! On Saturday May 20th, Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its 7th annual celebration of the music of Bob Dylan. This has been a big year for Dylan. In December of 2016 he received the Nobel Prize in Literature and in March he released a triple album of classic American standards. At 75, Bob also continues to tour worldwide. To celebrate his continued success, our show this year will be a double feature. The early show will focus on his early acoustic material, especially his songs of social unrest and political protest. The later show will focus on Dylan's most literary and poetic songs from throughout his six decade career. Both shows will feature the Dylan-interpreting talents of Art Tebbetts, Danielle Miraglia, and Matt Borrello. For the later show, they will be accompanied by a full band. This is not a show to miss.
