Jessica Rhaye Presents The Dylan Project
Advance $20.00 / Door: $25.00
“Nice work with the Dylan tunes… Especially liked hearing Lay Down Your Weary Tune” – Ron Sexsmith
“I like it a lot. Very cool project.” – Dr. Rob Bowman, Grammy Award-Winning Professor of Ethnomusicology
Come celebrate the release of Just like a Woman – Songs of Bob Dylan Jessica Rhaye’s sixth full-length album, and first with backing band The Ramshackle Parade. This rollicking folk-rock interpretation of Dylan’s classics and hidden gems transcends the concept of a simple tribute album. The result is a fun folk-rock album with psychedelic undertones, with folkie ballads, a conversation between rockabilly and swing, and engaging new interpretations of the Master’s works.
Just Like a Woman will be an evening of professionals performing live together – – true to the recording style of Dylan’s earlier work. Members imagined working in the style of Dylan in Woodstock, the days of the Basement Tapes.
Jessica Rhaye is an award-winning singer/songwriter/graphic artist with a career spanning 20 years, and a list of accolades including a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, multiple East Coast Music Award nominations, and Music New Brunswick awards. Jessica has graced many prestigious stages including the National Arts Centre, Stan Rogers Folk Festival, Mariposa Folk Festival, Canadian Music Café, Hotel Café, Half Moon Putney and many more.

Advance: $20.00 / Doors: $25.00
It’s the night before Bob Dylan’s birthday, and all through the room, singers and songwriters howl at the moon.

As your MC for the night, Blair has invited some of our city’s finest singer/songwriters to join him at Hugh’s Room Live to pay homage to one of the most original and influential voices in American popular music.
Folk rock singer-songwriter, Bob Dylan, was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota. While attending college, he began performing folk and country songs, taking the name “Bob Dylan.” In 1961 Dylan signed his first recording contract, and the rest – as they say – is history. The legendary singer-songwriter has received Grammy, Academy and Golden Globe awards, as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Nobel Prize for Literature.
