Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bob Dylan will be playing at the Brady Theater Saturday night.
At times a somewhat reluctant spokesperson for social injustice and the Civil Rights movement, Dylan’s music, poetry and songwriting spans five decades. "Blowin In The Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin" became anthems for the anti-war movement in the 60s and 70s.
While he primarily plays guitar, piano and harmonica, he and various backup groups have covered nearly every musical genre – from rock and roll to country, folk, blues, jazz and even gospel.
His resume includes not only his impact as a musician, but also as a writer, director and actor.
Five of Dylan’s songs are listed among the 500 most influential songs that shaped rock and roll by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2000, his song "Things Have Changed" from the movie "Wonder Boys" won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
He has earned 11 Grammy awards, including two for Album of the Year and also a Lifetime Achievement Award. Six of his songs are listed in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
