Join us for an evening of music and conversation focused on Bob Dylan.

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman, Bob Dylan is easily the most celebrated pop artist of his generation – winning the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.

The voice of the counterculture, Dylan is arguably the most influential songwriter, singer, artist, and writer of his “a-changin” times, starting in the 1960's with searing protest songs addressing social injustice. Defying pop music conventions, his lyrics incorporate a wide range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences. Since the late 1980s, Dylan, who performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica, has been on the “Never Ending Tour.” Best known as a songwriter, Dylan expands on musical traditions including folkblues, country, gospelrock and roll, rockabilly, EnglishScottish, Irish folk music, and even jazz.

As a musician, he has received eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award. Dylan has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of FameMinnesota Music Hall of FameNashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. The Pulitzer Prize jury in 2008 awarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." In May 2012, Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.
