A stylish & witty 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's books may be immense but there’s nothing dry about his talks. He has appeared at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and at Dylan Conferences at Minnesota, Vienna and Bristol universities. His Canterbury Arts Festival event was the best-attended that year. At the New School, NYC, the room was overflowing for his talk, as were the halls in Galway, Ireland, and the University of Texas.
Michael Gray’s events are lively, spontaneous and acute, giving a thoroughly entertaining, fresh account of Dylan’s achievement.
