Best Bets: Minnesota musicians salute Dylan
The keyboard player from The Revolution, a fiddle player from the Rolling Thunder Revue and a local player or two will be among the 19 acts to perform during A Salute to the Music of Bob Dylan.
The event, the first major lure of this year’s North Country Dylan Celebration, is at 7 p.m. Saturday at Sacred Heart Music Center and is a benefit for the Armory Arts & Music Center — a venue which, of course, at least once had a young Robert Zimmerman in the audience.
The lineup for what promises to be a lengthy night of Dylan covers includes Lonnie Knight, Gene LaFond, Paul Metsa, Jamie Ness, Scarlet Rivera, Courtney Yasmineh and more.
The North Country Dylan Celebration has events running through the Blood on the Tracks Express, a Dylan-themed musical train ride, on May 29.
