Simply Dylan

John O’Connell’s Simply Dylan will be back in 2019 for a brand new headline tour across the UK.

Simply Dylan is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks, and no pretence. It is Liverpool based artist John O’Connell’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan.

This no ordinary interpretation continues to delight Dylan fans who are craving to hear some of prodigious songwriter’s back catalogue live in concert.

“…a show that every Bob Dylan fan should see!” – Louder Than War

It is the band’s precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan’s work that has gathered momentum. Delighting their audiences and generating incredible interest across the UK the band have picked up some fantastic reviews.

John O’Connell, formerly of Groundpig who leads Simply Dylan, has had his name indelibly written in to the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan Band.
