“…a show that every Bob Dylan fan should see!” Louder Than War
Following a sold out show at The Auditorium at Echo Arena Liverpool in May, John O'Connell has announced he will be taking Simply Dylan on the road in January 2017 for a six date nationwide tour.
Simply Dylan is Liverpool based artist John O’Connell’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan and is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks, no pretense, no lookalikes, no carbon copy.
This no ordinary interpretation of Bob Dylan has been seen by thousands of people across the UK and continues to delight Dylan fans young and old. It is their precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan's work from the 1970s onwards which has gathered momentum and generated incredible interest and fantastic reviews from Press across Europe.
John O'Connell (formerly of Groundpig) who leads Simply Dylan, is a rare talent who has had his name indelibly written in to the tapestry of Liverpool's music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians from the city to form his Dylan Band. John said: ‘Simply Dylan endeavours to focus on detail and colour performing some of Dylan’s more challenging songs; bringing his lyrical content and story-telling alive.”
