This lecture will travel on the road with Bob Dylan as he navigates through the turbulent decade of 1960’s. From his childhood in Minnesota, to folk troubadour of Greenwich Village, to his ground breaking trilogy (“Bringing It Back Home” “Highway 61”, “Blonde on Blonde”) to becoming the rock/poet enigma of his time. Highlights from the post-60’s work (including “Blood on the Tracks” to the American Songbook Trilogy) will also be briefly explored. We will discuss his extraordinary artistic achievements as a songwriter, poet and cultural icon of the 20th century.
