The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Bob Dylan Center Announces Inaugural Fellowship Recipients (Billboard) [5]
    • “Tega Ethan, a 25-year-old singer-songwriter from Nigeria, and Taylor Zickfoose, a 28-year-old native of Washington state, are the inaugural recipients of the Bob Dylan Center songwriter fellowship.”
  • Artists On The Bill with Bob Dylan (BobServe) [10]
    • “Dylan has played in so many places around the world that it has given him the opportunity to showcase more than 400 different acts. Of these, around 250 appeared just one time with him.”
  • Bob Dylan’s Ongoing Journey (Inside Higher Ed) [8]
    • “He quite rightly regards himself as a modern-day troubadour, minstrel, bard and rhapsode, like those who recited Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. His ability to draw upon and synthesize these varied influences and create songs that are entirely new and original is a real testament to his musical and poetic genius.”
  • Dickey Betts Talks Singing “Ramblin’ Man” with Bob Dylan (Flagging Down) [8]
    • “That “Ramblin’ Man” performance took place in Tampa, near Dickey’s home, in 1995. It’s not the only time Betts and Dylan shared a stage. For a decade or so, whenever Dylan played a show in central Florida, Dickey was likely as not to pop onstage to jam.”
  • LLoyd Fonvielle on ‘Shadows in the Night (Peter Stone Brown) [10]
    • “To call the results astonishing is to put it mildly. Part of what’s so moving about the album is that Bob Dylan, an iconic rebel, a great though eccentric songwriter in his own right, surrenders utterly to the lyrics and the melodies of songs written for mainstream audiences.”
  • A Restored Western Masterpiece from Sam Peckinpah & Bob Dylan (MovieWeb) [5]
    • “Fortunately, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid has been restored, and the Criterion Collection is releasing a 4K set that includes the 50th anniversary release, the original theatrical release, and Peckinpah’s first cut. The film stars Kris Kristofferson, James Coburn, Jason Robards, and Bob Dylan, who created the gorgeous score for the film.”
