    Fans will be elated over the upcoming release of ‘Travelin’ Thru, 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 15′ showcases never-before-heard recordings from Bob Dylan’s journey to Nashville. The series and all new collection are available for preorder in the Official Bob Dylan Store Now. http://bit.ly/30q3BdT

    In turbulent times during the 1960s and 1970s fans and non fans were unmistakably moved by Dylan’s lyrics, as the man who was born Robert Zimmerman somehow was able to capture the mood of the nation and the experience of the common man with his poignant yet accessible lyrics. Over the ensuing decades Dylan has not lost his verve for writing or performing, continuing to play scores of shows all over America to adoring audiences.

    Interest in Dylan’s history was piqued this year by the release of the long awaited Martin Scorcese film. ” ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A BOB DYLAN STORY BY MARTIN SCORSESE captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975, and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed that fall. Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese creates a one-of-a-kind movie experience: part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream. Featuring Joan Baez, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, Sam Shepard, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan giving his first on-camera interview in over a decade. The film goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music—it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.”

    This selection of tour dates will attempt to be affordable and accessible for college students, the original target audience for Dylan- with shows at or near colleges. In an age when each day seems to bring the news of the passing of a legendary artist in folk and rock and roll fans ought to take any opportunity that they have to see this legendary writer and performer.
