Dylan Days: Friday in Bob Dylan’s hometown

Today is when Dylan Days 2010 really heats up with our major events. This year we’re experimenting with holding the literary event in the afternoon to catch the early arrivals for the night’s big songwriter contest. Please come out to see one or both, but we especially hope to build a crowd to support the one act play and the writers and poets traveling from all over. This year’s play is controversial and what director Mike Ricci and the cast have done with just one week of preparation is truly astounding.

  • Dylan Days Literary Showcase at HCC Theater 3-5 p.m., featuring winning entries from B.J. Rolfzen Creative Writing Contest and the world premier of the winning play from the Dylan Days One Act Playwright Contest, “Armigideon” by Sandra Dempsey.
  • Dylan Days Singer-Songwriter Contest at Zimmy’s 7-midnight. The 18th annual “Bob’s Birthday Bash” event, featuring talented songwriters from around the world.

Tomorrow morning brings the “Bobby Zimmerman Bus Tour,” a host of afternoon author signings and presentations and concludes with a ton of live music, including the Dylan Days Benefit Concert with the Big Dipper Jazz band and the Freewheelers.
