Bushey, produces the show in a volunteer capacity, will be honored by the city of Duluth at the event. There will also be a Dylan-themed silent auction with rare memorabilia signed by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan and more. Magic Marc Percansky will be the master of ceremony and the live music will be performed by Cowboy Angel Blue, the Boomchucks and special guests. Tickets are available online and at the door.
Highway 61 Revisited airs Mondays and Saturday’s from 5 to 6 p.m. The show is one of a handful of KUMD programs that has consistently aired for more than two decades. The show features Bob Dylan’s music, including live and studio performances as well as different versions of his songs performed by other artists.
Proceeds from the celebration will benefit the 2017 Duluth Dylan Fest and KUMD Duluth Public Radio.
