ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Just in time for Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday, Red House Records has released its second tribute to the Minnesota-born folk-rock icon.
Red House released “A Nod to Bob 2” on Tuesday. The album is a 10th anniversary sequel to “A Nod to Bob,” the St. Paul label’s biggest seller.
Like the first Dylan tribute, “A Nod to Bob 2” features Red House artists interpreting Dylan songs. Performers include John Gorka, singing “Just Like a Woman”; Lucy Kaplansky, covering “Every Grain of Sand”; and Storyhill, performing “Lay Down Your Weary Tune.”
Other artists on the album include Eliza Gilkyson, Hot Tuna, Spider John Koerner and Guy Davis.
Dylan turns 70 next Tuesday. He was born in Duluth and grew up in Hibbing, on Minnesota’s Iron Range.
