With this concert, Joan Osborne unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter upon Bob Dylan’s celebrated canon.

The no-nonsense singer winds her supple, soulful voice around Dylan’s poetic, evocative lyrics, etching gleaming new facets in them along the way. Her expressive delivery helps us take a step back and appreciate his genius anew. Dylan superfans, rest assured: She gives the catalog her utmost respect. Expect classics like “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” as well as political anthems and deeper cuts. Come get tangled up in Joan.
