Bob Dylan’s songs formed an indispensable soundtrack to the 1960s, and have continued to capture the imagination of audiences ever since. His song lyrics are often praised for their poetry and he has been acclaimed by some as one of the great unsung poets of the 20th century.

This was an evening of discussion about Dylan’s life and lyrics and Jewishness, punctuated by covers of some key songs from the mesmerising Jackie Oates.
