PAUL WOOKEY and the Zimmermen present “Dylan ’66 Revisited”
In July 1965 Bob Dylan literally rocked the US folk world at the Newport Folk Festival by playing some of his songs with electric instruments and a backing band. In early 1966 Bob then set off on a World Tour with The Hawks (a.k.a. The Band) and actually played In Sydney and Melbourne in the April. In May 1966 Bob Dylan and The Hawks appeared at London’s Royal Albert Hall to play a scorching electric set that resulted in boos from the hard core folkies. The hit single ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ comes from this period.
Highly regarded and award winning Australian folk/blues singer songwriter, Paul Wookey is a serious Bob Dylan fan and has discovered the set lists for Bob’s Sydney and Melbourne shows. For the very first time, Paul will perform a set combining the best acoustic and electric songs from Bob’s Sydney, Melbourne and London shows. Paul will be backed by The Zimmermen comprising Pete Robinson bass (ex The Strangers), Rob Nicholson drums (ex The Honeydrippers) and Peter Summers guitar/keyboard (ex Riverina Playboys).
Expect an ‘electrifying’ experience.
