Music Series: Bob Dylan’s 83rd Birthday Celebration

May 19 @ 7:00 pm

The LIM, the Greater Port Jefferson Arts Council, and WUSB-FM’s  Sunday Street concert series present an eclectic music series featuring nationally and internationally known touring artists. All performances will take place in the Carriage Museum’s Gillespie Room.

September 16-19th, 1974  found Bob Dylan in a Manhattan studio to record what would be regarded as one of his greatest albums, Blood on the Tracks. In late December of that year, he suddenly decided to re-record several of the tracks in advance of the release of the album in January, 1975.

This year’s Dylan birthday celebration centers on the 50th anniversary of its recording. While you’ll hear many of the songs from that esteemed album, you’ll also hear other Dylan songs — both familiar as well as possibly unfamiliar — from his extensive catalogue.

The artists include:  The Kennedys, Rod MacDonald, Russ Seeger, Steve Kaplan, Tom Ryan and Mark Mancini with special guest Mary Lee Kortes (who, in 2002  recorded a track by track cover of the ‘Blood on the Tracks’ album.)

Seats are limited to 100 for this annual event, which is always a sell-out!
