Simply Dylan

At Oran Mor

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

Simply Dylan delivers the songs of Bob Dylan with no attempt to imitate or impersonate the prodigious songwriter, instead the band focus on the bringing Dylan’s lyrics and clever storytelling alive with a joyous and exuberant sound.

From a modest project which sold out the famous Cavern Club 6 times, the band have gone on to receive fantastic reviews from the Spanish Press, impressing Dylan fans from across the UK, and even opening up the IOW Festival 2019 performing on the Big Top Stage.

With a band of multi-instrumentalists, Simply Dylan have a reputation for performing some of Dylan’s more challenging songs. No ordinary interpretation, this is a remarkable and exceptional project which

promises to delight Dylan fans young and old and to ignite a new wave of passion for one of the world’s most prodigious songwriters.
