Old Crow Medicine Show reimagines Dylan

Posted: November 12, 2017 at 1 a.m.

Old Crow Medicine Show, known as an American string band, brings the music of Bob Dylan to the Walton Arts Center from a new album, “50 Years of Blonde on Blonde.” The band reimagined Dylan’s classic for the 50th anniversary of its release.

Bob Dylan has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Today, his work is considered "roots music" -- with a mix of folk, blues, country, gospel, rock 'n' roll, rockabilly and more. Much of Dylan's celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became a reluctant "voice of a generation," writing songs that became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement, according to <em>Rolling Stone</em> magazine.
