2015 UK TOUR CONFIRMED

A TRIBUTE TO BOB DYLAN,

NOT A BOB DYLAN TRIBUTE

 

Following his debut nationwide tour last year; Liverpool based artist John O’Connell will be taking Simply Dylan – his personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan on the road this September.

Simply Dylan is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks, no pretense, no lookalikes, no carbon copy. However this is no ordinary interpretation of Bob Dylan, this is a remarkable and exceptional project which promises to delight Dylan fans young and old and to ignite a new wave of passion for one of the world’s most prodigious songwriters.

John O’Connell (formerly of Groundpig) who leads Simply Dylan, is a rare talent who has had his name indelibly written in to the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians from the city to form his Dylan Band.

It is their precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan’s work from the 1970s onwards which has gathered momentum and generated incredible interest. From a modest project recognizing Dylan’s 70th Birthday in 2011 Simply Dylan has gone from selling out the Cavern Club 7 times over to receiving fantastic reviews from Press across Europe with Louder Than  War calling Simply Dylan ‘..A show that every Bob Dylan fan should see!’.  John O’Connell said:

‘Simply Dylan endeavours to focus on detail and colour performing some of Dylan’s more challenging songs; bringing his lyrical content and story-telling alive.”
