Some headlines from the Convention

 

Dylan Chronicles - original manuscript of Olof's book to be auctioned at the Convention

The original manuscript of Olof Bjorner's book - 'Dylan Chronicles' - a 10,000 page meticulous chronology of Dylan's life from 1958 to the end of the 90s will be auctioned at John Green Day 4, the Bob Dylan Convention being held in Northampton on March 27. The manuscript was a gift to John Green from Olof.

 


 

‘Bob Dylan in the British Isles’ – Steve Butterworth signing his book at the Convention

Steve Butterworth will be at the Convention, signing copies of his book – ‘Bob Dylan in the British Isles’ - published in January this year. The book contains interviews, anecdotes, fans’ stories, reviews, photos and drawings about The Man in the UK.
 


 

Cold Overture release their latest CD for the Convention

Fresh from their recent gig alongside Joan Baez and Emmylou Harris, Cold Overture will be playing songs from their latest CD 'The story of the Hurricane' - a collection of Bob Dylan songs, at the Convention; including, of course, ‘Hurricane’ – the second best version of the song in history! 

They are in the studio this week, laying down the final tracks to the CD, in readiness for JGDay4.

Items from a private collection on sale at JGDay4

Jeff Stevens – well-known in the Dylan world for many years and an ex-Freewheeler – is having a bit of a clear-out and will be doing his version of a ‘Dylan Car Boot Sale’ on the day. 

Jeff’s been following Dylan since the early days and, as well as being a prolific writer and speaker on The Man over the years, he’s also amassed a plethora of memorabilia. Should be worth a browse!

Several traders are also going to be at the Convention - Woodstock Publications, Street Legal, Sound Advice and Badlands.
 


 

Johnny Cash tribute at the Convention

Part of John Green Day 4 will include a tribute to The Man In Black - the bloke who was there for Dylan when he needed him most.

Steve Gibbons, Cold Overture and Peter Stone Brown will feature one of Johnny Cash’s songs in their respective sets; we’ll have some DVD, some audio – there’ll even be a Johnny Cash Singalong!!
 


 

Masked and Anonymous at the Convention 

As well as showing the whole of the film on the BIG screen at the Convention, we’re also delighted to welcome along Trevor Gibb to introduce the movie.

Trevor has been writing about Masked and Anonymous since its inception and will be talking about his interview with the director, Larry Charles.

Don’t miss this version of The Director's Cut!

  Editor of 'Judas!' and Dylan author, Andrew Muir, will be amongst the guest speakers at the Bob Dylan Convention.

The subject of his 'interactive' talk revolves around the accuracy or otherwise of some of the more famous Dylan lyrics.

A chance to have your say or sit and listen - up to you!

     

 
Peter Stone Brown to perform at JGDay4

Peter Stone Brown is confirmed as another of the guests at John Green Day 4 on March 27.

Peter is an American singer/songwriter and will be performing a selection of Dylan songs, as well as his own compositions.

He'll also be talking about the Dylan concerts he attended in the early days, including Newark 1963 - the first concert given by Dylan after the assassination of JFK, the Philharmonic Hall 1964 concert (there's a CD Bootleg Series release date within days of the Convention), and Forest Hills 1965.

C.P. Lee confirmed as guest speaker

C.P. Lee - author, musician, University lecturer and a regular contributor to the Freewheelin magazine - has been confirmed as a guest speaker at this year's JGDay Bob Dylan convention being held in Northampton on March 27.

C. P. Lee at home
C. P. Lee - at home!

CP will bring his own home-spun brand of Dylan observation to the convention - and probably some music as well. Never a dull moment with CP and his weird and whacky world. Well worth experiencing.

The title of C.P. Lee's talk  is 'Sniffing A Mighty Wind'; and he'll be taking a look at the world of folk music before Bob Dylan got his hands on it!

See and hear the REAL people who inspired 'A Mighty Wind' - he'll be showing hilarious but crap videos and playing hilarious but crap recordings of hilarious but crap songs from the period! NOT TO BE MISSED.

An hour of laughter from The Merchant of Mirth himself.

     

 
Steve Gibbons to headline JGDay4
     
Steve Gibbons   Steve Gibbons will be headlining the Fourth Annual John Green Day performing a solo set of songs from Dylan's mega back pages, as well as songs from his own repertoire.

Steve Gibbons has been fronting bands for over four decades - The Dylan Project and The Steve Gibbons Band, to name but two - and his solo performances are legend.

Regardless of venue, whether a club, pub or festival, Steve has the magic of enthralling an entire audience. The man means business and should prove a huge hit at JGDay4, as he did at the First John Green Day back in 2001.
