Hasek Playin' Dylan songs in Public (72* d) RE: BS: Playin' Dylan songs in Public 25 Feb 00


Hello All !! The song title is actually " To Ramona ", so if I missed a joke, so sorry. You know , I play over 100 dates a year and 10 % of the covers/trad material I perform are Dylan songs . As all of you know ,many early Dylan song melodies were directly taken from traditional songs. Even some of his early song lyrics mirror trad songs. At least this tells us where he began and what he listened too. At my age of 47 and living/growing up through these wonderful and incredibly changing decades in the USA , he is by far,one of the greatest contributors to folk music there ever will be in my life time.

PS I've secured many a gig over the 25 years I've been playing by performing Dylan songs at open mic's.
