Craven Arts Council & Gallery is proud to kick off a new season of “At the Gallery: American Composers” with the music of Bob Dylan, performed by Ruth Wyand. The “reluctant voice of a generation,” Dylan’s music is seen as the anthem of the hippie and counter cultures of the 1960’s. The concert will take place in the Main Gallery at Bank of the Arts at 7pm, September 22nd.
The “Reluctant Voice of a Generation,” Bob Dylan has been a power house in American folk and popular music for more than five decades. With songs that draw from a wide range of political, literary, philosophical, and social influences, Dylan’s music was the anthem of the anti-war, Civil Rights, and counterculture movements of the 1960’s. In a career that continues to this day, Dylan has explored the technical, lyrical, and political motives and means of music, from electrical guitars to concept albums. His songs and albums have won him 11 Grammys, induction into the Songwriter and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, a Pulitzer Prize, and the Nobel Prize for Literature. Hits include “Times They Are A Changing,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” and “Like a Rolling Stone.”
Ruth Wyand is an accomplished musician who has toured the United States, United Kingdom, France, New Zealand, Bermuda, and Kuwait. With one foot in the juke joints and one foot in the jazz clubs Ruth draws on American roots music to frame her lyrics and demonstrate her strengths as a guitarist, songwriter and vocalist.
