Bob Dylan

Bullfrog Rata and Shayn Wills two of NZ's finest acoustic blues/folk players team up for a night of obscure and popular Bob Dylan songs. Being fans for over 20 years, Shayn and Bullfrog have a huge amount of Dylan songs in their extensive repertoires.

When asked about the show Bullfrog says, 'One of the things I like about Bob Dylan’s material is that he covers a large range of genres, everything from folk and gospel to blues, rock and country, it makes for a very interesting night, not only lyrically but musically'.

When asked about his love of Dylan’s material, Shayn had this to say, 'Well, I think I first heard Dylan’s songs in about 1985. I was playing in a little blues club in Khyber Pass in Auckland and was very fresh faced and new to live performance. I think the song that got me was “don’t think twice it's alright”, and from there I spent the next couple of years completely hooked and just learning Dylan tunes.

I think the folkies in Auckland are still reeling from all the Dylan material I put them through. I've never really thought of myself as a Bob Dylan Freak but I guess when you know over 40 Bob Dylan songs it could be considered slightly freakish'.

If you're into Bob Dylan or just into great lyrical and musical songs, then don’t be anywhere else but the Hokowhitu Bowling Club on the 27th of May and be there early to guarantee your seat!
