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.

It is their precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan's work from the 1970s onwards that has gathered momentum and generated incredible interest. From a modest project recognising Dylan's 70th Birthday in 2011 Simply Dylan has gone from selling out the Cavern Club 7 times, to receiving fantastic reviews from the Spanish Press, to impressing Dylan fans from across the UK on their Tours to opening up the Isle of Wight Festival in 2019.
