Bob Dylan: The Times Are A Changin’ (B2-C2)

 

Note on the singer:

Bob Dylan is bob_dylan_in_toronto2an American songwriter, singer, artist, and writer. He has been influential in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when his songs chronicled social unrest. Early songs such as 'Blowin' in the Wind' and 'The Times They Are a-Changin' became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving behind his initial base in the American folk music revival, his six-minute single 'Like a Rolling Stone', recorded in 1965, enlarged the range of popular music.

Dylan's lyrics incorporate a wide range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences.  His recording career, spanning more than 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song—from folk, blues and country to gospel, rock and roll and rockabilly  to English, Scottish and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook. Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. In 2016, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature, the second person besides George Bernard Shaw to have won both an Oscar and the Nobel Prize.
