Tickets are available at just £10 (including interval drink) from Janette Macdonald, by calling 01368 850665 or emailing janmac0@btinternet.com

Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan @ The Queen's Hall
Apr 23 @ 7:30 pm

Joan Osborne has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the great voices of her generation — both a commanding, passionate performer and a frank, emotionally evocative songwriter. A multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee, the soulful vocalist is a highly sought-after collaborator and guest performer who has performed alongside many notable artists, including Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, and Mavis Staples to name a few.

Her debut album Relish released in 1995 was nominated for Album of the Year at the 38th Grammys, and also earned nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. In addition, the track One of Us was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. But Osborne quickly made it clear that she was more interested in musical integrity and creative longevity than transient pop success, and she made that point repeatedly.

Her stunning performance of her song St Teresa on The Transatlantic Sessions in 2011 with Jerry Douglas and Donal Lunny & others reverberates to this day.

Find out more about Joan through her website: www.joanosborne.com and on Twitter @joan_osborne

On the night, there will a set from a support act and doors will open at 6.30pm. When booking through The Queen’s Hall, there will be a £2 booking fee and a £1 transaction fee for the entire booking if purchasing by phone, post or email.
