A salute to Bob Dylan's music on Saturday night featured national and local favorites honoring the Minnesota legend.

The concert was part of the North Country Dylan Celebration. The Armory Arts and Music Center put on the show as a benefit to help raise funds to restore the Historic Duluth Armory. The building has some significance in Bob Dylan lore, as the place where he saw Buddy Holly perform just days before the rock legend died in a plane crash.

The lineup on Saturday included national acts like Scarlet Rivera and Gene LaFond, and local favorites like Jamie Ness and Jim Hall.
