Suzanne Sheridan-The Music Of Bob Dylan
The Music of Bob DylanA Bob Dylan tribute concert will be the May 20 event at the Merryall Center in New Milford. Following two sold-out concerts in Westport, The Suzanne Sheridan Band will be on stage at Merryall in tribute to the great American rock poet Bob Dylan on his selection for the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature. Sheridan will be covering the Dylan songs that capture “the essence of who Dylan is.” These most l will include “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Like a Rollin’ Stone,” “The Times They Are a-Changin’, ” “I Shall Be Released,” “You Gotta Serve Somebody,” “Masters of War,” “Forever Young,” “Lay Lady Lay,” “Just Like a Woman,” and “Hey Mr. Tambourine Man.” Sheridan might even take on an imitation of Dylan’s scratchy, high-pitched vocalizations. Sheridan will be joined by musicians Bob Cooper on keyboard and organ; Colin Healy on harmonica, mandolin and fiddle; drummer Jake Habegger; and Paul Horton on lead guitar, a well-known Nashville studio musician. This will be Sheridan’s first appearance at Merryall. She and Merryall artist Rob Brereton performed together in October 2016 at the Westport Historical Society’s very popular folk series, Coffeehouse at the Wheeler’s. In addition to her Dylan concert, she and her band have done concerts featuring the music of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen (her personal favorites), Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, James Taylor, Carly Simon, and Pete Seeger in addition to leading singer-songwriter circles. She has been to Australia and Canada with the Mitchell/Cohen show and has performed several times at Voices Café. Her concerts at Voices Café have proven to be their highest grossing concerts since the inception of the series, beating out such notables as Peter Yarrow and Cheryl Wheeler. It is time that the Merryall audience finds out why.
