Forever Young - A 70th Birthday Tribute to Bob Dylan
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall : Main Auditorium
Robert Allen Zimmerman turns 70 on May 24th 2011, a landmark birthday sure to be celebrated with many a memorable musical party. To kick off the festivities, Celtic Connections has assembled an aptly diverse Scottish and international cast of Dylan devotees, including Tim O’Brien, Josh Rouse, Rosanne Cash, Thea Gilmore, Laura Cantrell, James Grant, Kris Drever, Rab Noakes and Gemma Hayes, with Glasgow’s own Roddy Hart & the Lonesome Fire as house band for the evening. As well as featuring the singers’ pick of Dylan favourites, the show also highlights the strong Scottish influence over this uniquely seminal artist’s vast and varied oeuvre, in his adaptations and reinventions of such classic traditional ballads as Tramps and Hawkers (’I Pity the Poor Immigrant’), The Bonnie Lass O’ Fyvie (’Pretty Peggy’) and Lord Randall (’A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’).
