Revisiting Bob Dylan’s ‘Highway 61 Revisited’
This has been a year for the record books, certainly. One of the high points of 2020 is that it is the 55th anniversary of the release of Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited.”
The Bardavon in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., is celebrating with a free show at its Bardavon@YouTube site online with new performances of Dylan songs by well-known and newer musicians. Highlights include “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry,” by Jimmy Vivino, Rich Pagano and John Sebastian; “From a Buick 6” by blues master Guy Davis; “Ballad of a Thin Man” by author and musician Steve Earle; and “Queen Jane Approximately” by Lucinda Williams.
The performance on Sunday, Aug. 30, begins at 8 p.m. There will be commentary by Bardavon Executive Director Chris Silva.
