As straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks, no pretense; Simply Dylan is John’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan. O’Connell, formerly of Groundpig, has had his name indelibly written into the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan Band.
The combination of the band delivering high energy renditions of the prodigious songwriter’s work and John skillfully singing and enunciating the lyrics, has seen the project go from recognising Dylan’s 70th Birthday, to selling out the Cavern Club 6 times, to receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK and most recently having the privilege to open up the Isle of Wight Festival in 2019 on the big top stage.
“It is incredible to consider that Dylan has been writing and performing for some 6 decades and continues to do so right up to the present day. The talent he has for story-telling and developing a song is extraordinary. My greatest challenge is deciphering a set-list when there is so much choice and an array of genres to select from; after all everyone has their own personal favourite!” John O’Connell
This new tour will celebrate and pay tribute to the career of one of the most iconic songwriters.
