Bob Dylan Birthday Special

May 20, 2019

May 24/26

Crossroads joins in with Global Village and Strange Currency to celebrate the birthday of Bob Dylan.

We’ll hear blues covers of his songs from Johnny Winter, the Staple Singers, the Holmes Brothers, Bettye LaVette, Sue Foley, Eric Bibb and more in hour one.

Then in hour two, a Sound Opinions special that reexamines two critical periods in Dylan’s career – his early days as a folk and protest song artist, and then his head-turning switch to electric with Bringing It All Back Home and an appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965.
