No songwriter of the last half of the 20th century has cast a longer shadow than Bob Dylan. As Grammy-nominated Red House artist Eliza Gilkyson once put it, "He was always about breaking out of structure, as a lyricist, a vocalist, a poet/philosopher/storyteller. He irreverently and irrevocably turned the suburban backyard of folk music into a mysterious tangled forest of unlimited possibilities." Like Eliza, all the artists on A Nod to Bob 2--from peers to singers and songwriters of succeeding generations--have been heavily influenced by Bob Dylan's significant body of work.
A Nod to Bob 2 is a stunning collection of artistically unique Dylan covers performed by some of today's top folk and Americana acts, from Texas troubadour Jimmy LaFave to legendary rock band Hot Tuna.
