The Bob Dylan is coming to the Tribute Community Centre in Oshawa Tuesday, July 4 2017, To mark the return of the Nobel winning poet, singer, painter, novelist, actor, songwriter, musician, iconoclast we asked our creative pals for their Dylan reflections. We will run them as they come in.
Wayne Petti of Greylands, Cuff The Duke and occasionally Blue Rodeo cites "Girl from the North Country" as his fave track, its a track he covered with Joel Plaskett on Grey Land's debut, Songs By Other People.
"There is something so peaceful about the original version. No matter how I might be feeling, when I hear that song it always chills me out and takes me away for those few minutes. Later in his career when he recorded it with Johnny Cash, for Nashville Skyline, it became an even more endearing song to me. That duet is the most casual and beautiful recording I've ever heard. Especially for two iconic musicians. Two of the all time greats, with no fancy production just a couple of dudes singing a song. Sometimes that's all you need!"
