As straightforward as the title suggests: No frills, no gimmicks, no pretence; Simply Dylan is John O’Connell’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan.
It is the band’s precise playing and high energy renditions that have gone from a modest project recognising Dylan’s 70th Birthday in 2011 to selling out the Cavern Club 6 times, to opening the 2019 Isle of Wight Festival to receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK.
John O’Connell, formerly of Groundpig who leads Simply Dylan, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan Band. They explore Dylan’s diverse work and bring his lyrical content to life; in doing so have ignited a new wave of passion for one of the world’s most prodigious song writers.
“This was a great night of music which had something for everyone.. Great songs performed by musicians at the top of their game.”
