Bob Dylan’s music to feature in ‘Girl from the North Country’ musical
Music from Bob Dylan’s iconic songbook is set to feature on stage in Girl from the North Country, an electrifying new work from playwright Conor McPherson, previewing in London in July 2017. Brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians, his music is beautifully woven into a new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.
Bob Dylan is one of our culture’s most influential and ground-breaking artists. 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.
