North Country: Pickin' On Bob Dylan - The Bluegrass Tribute
With his singular voice, stoic presence, and devastatingly observant lyrics, Bob Dylan continues to hold an undeniable influence on rock’n’roll. Over the course of his career, he has ably adopted many images: a protesting folkie, crooning country gentleman, and fiery rock frontman. Yet as his career progressed over the years, Dylan continues to find strength and inspiration from roots music. He undoubtedly understands that a great song is ultimately full of life.
Bob Dylan and bluegrass share a strong bond: an appreciation for the folk music that constitutes the foundation of American music. Therefore, these bluegrass interpretations are an appropriate exploration of Dylan’s biggest hits. Mandolin, banjo, and fiddle combine to find the earthy essence of such songs as “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Forever Young,” and “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.” Classic material and classic performances make this a classic album.
