Rolling Thunder: A Tribute To Bob Dylan Celebrates The 1965 Newport Folk Festival says
On the night of July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan, Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfield, Barry Goldberg, Jerome Arnold, and Sam Lay took the stage at the Newport Folk Festival and played a short, fiery, and honest amplified set as a protest to the haughty attitude that Alan Lomax had exhibited toward the electric blues/rock of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band the day before. Dylan, by his own choice, would not return to play the festival for 37 years. On Saturday, July 23, the weekend of the 51st anniversary of this now-historical and often misunderstood event, the newest and most authentic Dylan tribute in the southeast will perform a broad selection of Dylan's music in their first performance on an Atlanta stage, fittingly at the landmark Star Bar in L5P. Don't miss what promises to be one of the most exciting premiers of the year!
