2nd February (Monday) Word In Your Ear presents The Bobcast Live – Sid Speaks
“To mark the release of Bob Dylan’s 36th studio album, the fiftieth anniversary of him “going electric” but mainly because we feel like it, our next Word In Your Ear evening at The Islington is a Bobcast dedicated entirely to the enigma we call Bob Dylan. Mark Ellen and David Hepworth will be joined by two distinguished guests, Sid Griffin and Barb Jungr, both of whom are closer to Dylan’s music than most.”
The Islington, 1 Tolpuddle Street, London Borough of Islington N1 0XT
