Tonight: Highway 61 Revisited With an All Star Cast at Lincoln Center Out of Doors

Highway 61 Revisited

In August,1965, Bob Dylan released his second album of that year, Highway 61 Revisited.  It was the album where Dylan went electric.  It’s first track, Like a Rolling Stone, was the first six minute single ever released (although most radio stations at the time played only the first half of that song).  In other words, this was an important record, one which did indeed change the path of American music.

Tonight, Highway 61 Revisited will be played in its entirety by the Watkins Family Hour house band, Shawn Colvin, Rodney Crowell, Pokey LaFarge, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, Fiona Apple and more.  Justin Townes Earle will play an opening set.  This show is free at Lincoln Center Out of Doors at Damrosch Park.  The start time is 7pm, but I suggest that you get there as early as you can to get a seat as it will be crowded.
