This travel guide brings together wonderful stories from these key locations and the roots and early life of Bob Dylan. We also introduce you to four great contributors who live in Dylan’s homeland and play an active part in promoting everything Dylan:
Ed Newman writer, artist and promoter of the Duluth Dylan Fest and lives in Duluth.
Marc Percansky concert, music and event promoter based in the Minneapolis Saint Paul.
Matt Steichen journalist, publicist, presenter and big Dylan fan living in Lakeville.
And Paul Metsa musician, songwriter, author, radio and TV host. The Huffington Post called him, ‘The other great folksinger from Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range.’
We travel back in time to hear stories from Dylan’s early teacher, eye-witness accounts from early Dinkytown musical collaborators, as well as being privy to behind the scenes secrets from the classic Blood On The Tracks album. Fascinating insights into the early life of one of the most important songwriters in music history – and told with Minnesota voices.
"In terms of providing valuable insight into the music of Dylan, the Minnesota voices collected in this latest book on the singer may well be as close to capturing the true essence of Dear Bob before the fog of mystique truly swept in on him and he became as elusive as autumn smoke." ~Louder than War
"This book is packed full of interesting tidbits about Bob Dylan’s life in Minnesota, and it didn’t end when he left for New York in 1961. Admittedly, I was one of those who thought that Bob Dylan was ashamed of being from Minnesota and as soon as he left for New York he never came back, but this book dispelled that myth and taught me something new about Bob Dylan." ~Crazy on Classic Rock
