FestivaLink.net presents Boulder All-Star Tribute to Bob Dylan at Chautauqua Community House, Boulder, CO 5/17/09
(A Benefit Show for The Oral Cancer Foundation)
Music communities are often knit together by a few people. In Boulder, producer/teacher/bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Greg Schochet holds that role in the acoustic music world. For four years, he's recruited friends and bandmates to a musical Bob Dylan Birthday Party, a show for 100 fans with all proceeds donated to the Oral Cancer Foundation. Greg claims with some pride that even after 4 years of shows, no song has been repeated.
Of the 3+ hours of entertainment, Greg selected these songs to represent the event. A highlight for some was Halden Wofford's dramatic reading (from his iPhone) of Patrick Cullie's tale of survival as lighting director for the Rolling Thunder Revue.
