Course Description:

Join us for this trip on Bob Dylan’s magic swirlin' ship as we take a look at the pre-1980s work of the master as interpreted by artists other than Dylan himself. Our first session will cover folk artists who recorded Dylan’s songs, including one song that Dylan never actually recorded himself. Our second meeting will look at the work of pop musicians covering Dylan’s work; and, in our final session, we’ll consider Dylan covers by rock musicians (yes, there will be a Hendrix recording, but not the one you’re thinking of!).


Tuition: $40.00

Additional Fees: $0.00
