Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan

With Robert Depczenski

[In-person tour] Celebrate the 60th anniversary of “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” album release. This was Dylan’s second album and consisted primarily of original songs as opposed to his first album’s covers. The songs included: “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Masters of War,” “Oxford Town,” and “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” Dylan was strongly influenced by his time living in New York, and his work took on a more political edge. We also mark the 60th anniversary of The March on Washington, and Dylan’s performance there of “Only a Pawn in Their Game” immediately preceded Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. This walking tour with Robert Depczenski will examine the forces at work that influenced Dylan during the early 60’s and contributed to his meteoric rise as a protest singer, a sobriquet he always resisted.

Registration is now closed.
