Bob Dylan 72nd Birthday Bash in Champaign Saturday


About a year ago, the Champaign-Urbana Singer-Songwriter Collective presented a night-long tribute to folk singer Woody Guthrie on the occasion of his 100th birthday. This week, they turn their attention to one of the most prolific and influential artists of all time, Bob Dylan, who will be 72 on Saturday. Some two dozen local performers are scheduled to participate, and we’ll welcome several to play for us live on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.”
