His Music Started a Movement – Now, Watch as Joan Osborne Covers Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan lovers, be sure to mark your calendar for a special concert event this Friday night! Hot on the heels of two successful New York City residencies, Joan Osborne brings her Bob Dylan cover show to Atlanta’s City Winery. Joan Osborne Sings the Songs of Bob Dylan will headline the venue on April 12th beginning at 8:00 p.m.

On the album Songs of Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter. With performances honed by the time Osborne spent polishing them during “Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan” — two critically acclaimed two-week residencies she performed at New York City’s Café Carlyle in March 2016 and 2017, the seven-time Grammy- nominated, multi-platinum-selling singer and songwriter, whom The New York Times has called “a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer,” winds her supple, soulful voice around Dylan’s poetic, evocative lyrics, etching gleaming new facets in them along the way.

The album spans Dylan’s beloved standards from the ’60s and ’70s (“Masters of War,” “Highway 61 Revisited,” “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” “Buckets of Rain,” “Tangled Up In Blue”) to some of Osborne’s favorites from his later albums, including “Dark Eyes” (from 1985’s Empire Burlesque), “Ring Them Bells” (from 1989’s Oh Mercy), “Tryin’ To Get To Heaven” (from 1997’s Time Out of Mind), and “High Water” (from 2001’s Love and Theft).

Unconstrained by any notion of trying to imitate or surpass Dylan, Osborne felt free to play with the songs’ arrangements, a process that was also enabled by the virtuosity and versatility of Osborne’s collaborators, guitarist Jack Petruzzelli (Patti Smith, The Fab Faux) and keyboardist Keith Cotton (Idina Menzel, Chris Cornell), who performed with her at Café Carlyle, and with whom she co-produced the album. Half the songs were recorded with the trio and the other half feature a full band.

Get a double dose of folk rock when the Grammy-nominated singer brings Bob Dylan’s musical career to life. Tickets to see Joan Osborne Sings the Songs of Bob Dylan range from $38 to $50 and may be purchased online at www.citywinery.com/atlanta.
