Bill and Bob in the Freewheelin’ show
A singer will make his own contribution to Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday celebrations this month, as part of an iconic double whammy.
Bill Lennon, star of tribute show The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, and his band will perform the folk legend’s classic hits including Blowin’ In The Wind, Mr Tambourine Man and Subterranean Homesick Blues at Plinston Hall in Letchworth on Friday June 24.
The uncanny Bob tribute forms one half of a double header with The Sounds of Simon and Garfunkel – also featuring Bill.
The 43-year-old Hitchin musician said he is looking forward to the show after narrowly missing out on performing as part of a joke Dylan tribute show on Radio 4, when comedian John Shuttleworth took his slot at the last minute.
“Yes, I felt kind of jilted,” Bill said. “It would have been a great bit of publicity. But hey, he’s more famous than me. Though to be fair, I’m told his Dylan impersonation is not a patch on mine!”
