‘Girl from the North Country’ – Original London Cast Recording
Sep 29, 2017
The Original London Cast Recording of ‘Girl from the North Country’ is released today, featuring music from Bob Dylan’s iconic songbook.
‘Girl from the North Country’ is an electrifying new work from playwright Conor McPherson, currently showing at the Old Vic in London. Brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians, Dylan’s music is beautifully woven into a show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.
The Original London Cast Recording took place at Abbey Road Studios.
Bob Dylan is one of the most influential and ground-breaking artists in the world. Born in Duluth, Minnesota in 1941; self-taught on piano, guitar and harmonica, he travelled to New York City in 1961, quickly establishing himself as an explosive performer in the Greenwich Village music scene.
More than half a century later, Dylan continues to perform almost 100 concerts each year. He has released more than 50 albums and written over 600 songs. He’s sold more than 125 million records and is the holder of 11 Grammy Awards. He is also an accomplished visual artist and author, and in 2016 was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature – the first songwriter to receive such a distinction.
