Old American Junk presents A Tribute to Bob Dylan
In 1965, American songwriter Bob Dylan released two of the 20th century’s most groundbreaking and important albums. Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, often referred to as the era where “Dylan goes electric”. Both albums have proven to be highly influential for artists for half a century.
This June, the Wisconsin-based musical project Old American Junk will recreate both albums and play them in their entirety over the course of a four day period across Wisconsin. As a 50 year anniversary celebration, the albums will be played front to back in the track order of their release, with the band committing themselves to the interpretation of Dylan’s work in the most authentic and genuine manner possible, Old American Junk founder and producer Shane Hardwicke cites Dylan’s albums as being profoundly influential and important in their lyrical prowess, artistic innovation and musical sensibility.
