Archant

Truly authentic and stunningly realistic Bill Lennon captured the sounds and music of Nobel Peace Prize winner Bob Dylan.

And with his talented four-piece band they produced a magical show which was enthusiastically supported by a near full house.

The fun packed night took place at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds, on July 28.

The show had up to 350 songs from 37 studio albums it was hard to pick a set but there were true classics like “Blowin’ In The Wind”, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, “The Times They Are A-Changin’”, “All Along The Watchtower”, “Mr Tambourine Man”, “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight” and “Lay, Lady, Lay”.

In all they performed 25 songs in a 90-mintue set which included an encore of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” and “Like A Rolling Stone”.

And all captured with visual imagery from Dylan’s 1960s heyday.

It was a show to remember for those attending.
