In deference to the indelible marks of Dylan’s raw genius, acousticsNOW has assembled a collection of South Africa’s leading acoustic musicians to take residence in the NIROX Artist’s Residency – exploring, interpreting and rehearsing a unique program of Dylan’s profound work, which has controversially earned him the Nobel Prize for literature. You stand a chance to win tickets to Bob Dylan Subterranean Songbook Tribute, details at the bottom of this post.

The collective will dig deep into the master-influencer’s vast lyrical landscape to develop and inform their own creative output in a live public performance of exclusively Dylan compositions.

Dayne Rothbletz, Jon Shaban, Adelle Nqeto, Shotgun Tori, Tubatsi Moloi, Jamie Acheson and Lucy Kruger will present a full-day outdoor concert in the NIROX Sculpture Park amphitheatre on Saturday 25 November consisting entirely of their own renderings of Dylan – both popular and obscure. Additional instrumentation will include violin, harmonica, bass, tambourine and Tubatsi Moloi’s ethereal flute.

Epic festival food will be courtesy of the Epicurean Emporium, featuring an array of the finest traders from Johannesburg’s flourishing food markets, as well as freshly established Jozi restauranteurs.

If you haven’t as yet visited what is said to be one of the most beautiful gardens in Gauteng, check out this post of NIROX SCULPTURE PARK to see why you should visit.
