Northern Blues ‘n Roots and its organisers Dave Gillam and Derek Cromb will host the musicians at The Northshore Tavern.

‘Dylan spoke to an entire generation of dissatisfied American youth, accompanied by just his guitar and harmonica,’ Cromb said.

‘Then he created musical history through his appearance with an electrified backing band at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965.

‘(There) he returned to the rockier roots of his teenage years, recorded some of the most seminal recordings of the era and a cult status to match.’

Northern Blues ‘n Roots meets 7pm to 11pm, $10 entry. Fremantle roots musician Mike De Velta is the support act.
