An Evening With Writer Michael Gray
Bob Dylan, Literature and The Poetry of The Blues
Edge Hill University proudly presents a talk, with audio tracks & rare footage, from the author of Song & Dance Man III and The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia, definitive studies of Dylan’s work.
Michael explores the Minnesota Bard’s interaction with literature, and with the poetry of the blues.
Michael has appeared at the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame and at Dylan Conferences at Minnesota, Vienna and Bristol Universities. His Canterbury Festival event was the best-attended that year; at the New School NYC the room was overflowing for his talk, as were halls in Galway, Ireland, and at the University of Texas at Austin.
Michael Gray’s events are lively, spontaneous and acute, giving a thoroughly entertaining, fresh account of Dylan’s achievement.
