A RETURN TO CLASSIC AMERICAN SONGWRITING
Drowning in a sea of production line music for the masses, weary of the generic, the bland, the beige? Then join us in this celebration of our two greatest living American songwriters. Songs that tell stories, songs to inspire, to comfort, to bring joy – songs that changed the world.
No frills, no gimmicks - SIMPLY DYLAN is John O’Connell’s personal exploration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan. John, a rare talent who has had his name indelibly written into the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan Band.
“Effortlessly brilliant.” Peter Hooton, The Farm
“…they marry the extraordinary range and beauty of Dylan’s lyrics with a joyous, exuberant, celebratory sound.” Alan Bleasdale, Playwright
“A show every Bob Dylan fan should see.” Louder than War
Tom Spence - accompanied by his exceptional live band under the direction of Barney Taylor - celebrates the songwriting genius of Jimmy Webb and the incredible roster of artists that made his songs famous worldwide - Glenn Campbell, Art Garfunkel, Richard Harris, Joe Cocker and The 5th Dimension… ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’, ‘Galveston’ , ‘MacArthur Park’ , ‘All I Know’ ‘Wichita Lineman’ and many other classics.
Dreamers, mystics, rebels & rock n rollers come join us - it’s a Liverpool love in.
