Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music, What's on this Month, What's on this Week

What better way to celebrate Dylan’s birthday than by seeing his greatest album performed live from start to finish? Introduced by an acoustic set and topped off by some of the man’s greatest hits?

Playback have been making a name for themselves in Dublin over the past six months, taking venues from the Grand Social to the International to the Bello Bar by storm with their inventive recreations of classic albums by Dylan and Bowie. Largely faithful to the source material, they also like to mix things up once in a while to make sure you’re paying attention. The show’s a tenner in (pay at the door). See you there! Playback are: Justin McCann – vocals, keyboard Kiruu – vocals, guitar, keyboard, melodica Alan Maguire – lead guitar Gordon Dunning – bass Mark Finlay – drums Dowie Mooney – harmonica

Richard Farrell and Richard Ray Farrell have led lives as similar as their names. Both
have been busking and touring their way around Europe since they were young, honing
their craft and living their common passion for Blues music. Richard Ray has played with
and learned first hand from blues greats such as R.L Burnside and Frank Frost.

Richard is a Dubliner living in Copenhagen while Richard Ray is a Niagara native, with
Corkonian roots, who has moved to Spain. Yes, that’s a lot of Richard Farrells. And a lot of
place names too. But you’ll find them both on the same stage this May.
