BOB DYLAN A legend in St Malo du Bois
Bob Dylan. One that has influenced the careers of Bowie, Springsteen, Cohen, Young and other Beatles (sic). One of the greatest artists of the last decades … Pinch us! His latest album unexpected “Shadows in the Night” is composed of covers of the other Great, Frank Sinatra. Bob Dylan album that was not afraid to finding unknown songs, he was able to re-light his way, with the incredible talent that he knows.
So this concert to Poupet will necessarily unique, singular. It is a great honor to receive from us that Obama has called the greatest American musician in history. Poupet enters a new dimension, and certainly this 13 July will be an event like no other!
