Duluth Dylan Fest 2019: Joan Osborne Sings the Songs of Bob Dylan
Grammy-nominated singer Joan Osborne will perform a special Bob Dylan tribute concert on the eve of his 78th birthday at Sacred Heart Music Center, just blocks from where the legendary songwriter was born in Duluth. The event is part of Duluth Dylan Fest, a week-long birthday celebration honoring native son Bob Dylan.
Duluth-based folk trio Coyote will open the show.
Tickets are available at eventbrite.com, the Duluth Electric Fetus and Globe News in Superior. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
Osborne, a multi-platinum selling, seven-time Grammy nominated artist, released her cover album The Songs of Bob Dylan in 2017 and has been touring the music around the world. This will be her first performance at Sacred Heart Music Center, a volunteer-run organization based in a former 19th Century cathedral.
Osborne and her accompanist will perform acoustic-based versions of a wide range of Dylan songs from early classics to late period gems.
The Kentucky native started performing her own songs in New York City’s downtown rock clubs. She eventually scored multi-platinum success with her 1995 album Relish, featuring the Top 10 hit “One of Us.”
Osborne has toured with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, was featured in the motion picture Standing in the Shadows of Motown and performed a song with Bob Dylan in 2003. She has recorded nine full length albums.
