BOB Dylan turns 72 this month and to mark the musical legend's birthday, a stellar line-up of local musicians will play his songs at a tribute fundraiser on May 24 at the Byron Community Centre.
Artists such as The Starboard Cannons, Deidi Vine, Chris Aronsten, Bill Jacobi, Luke Vassella, Julie Oliver, Jessie Vintilla (of The Lucky Wonders), Tim Stokes, Stu Eadie, Thierry Fossemalle, Alex McLeod and Steve Russell will be presenting their interpretations of Dylan's master works.
Organiser Lyn McCarthy said Bob Dylan's body of work was unique, drawing upon folk, blues, country R&B, rock and roll, gospel and incorporating everything from Beat poetry to Mad magazine.
"He can claim to be among the most influential musical and cultural figures of the 20th century," she said.
All funds raised at the concert will go to the Byron Community Centre for the upkeep of its Steinway piano. The May 24 show is a one-night only event. Tickets are $25/$20 concession and can be purchased online at www.byroncentre.com.au or at the venue.
