Duluth Doing Deep Dive on Dylan (Again!)

Updated: May 15, 2019 08:54 AM

Bob Dylan is a common household name in the Northland. It seems that more people seem to know who the legendary artist is compared to those who don't. This is part of the reason that the annual Duluth Dylan Fest continues to be one of the most entertaining weeks of the year in the Twin Ports.

For those who are in the "don't know" group, Dylan was born in Duluth on May 24, 1941. Mark Nicklawske, who is on the Duluth Dylan Fest Committee, says he spent the first six years of his life in Duluth before moving to Hibbing for the rest of his childhood. 

The fun kicks off on Saturday, May 18 with the opening of the William Pagel Archives Bob Dylan Exhibit at the Karpeles Manuscript Libarry Museum.  

A new event this year features national recording artist Joan Osborne singing the songs of Bob Dylan at Sacred Heart Music Center. The concert from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Dylan's birthday. Tickets are $25 online and $30 at the door. 

The "Blood on the Tracks Express" Dylan-themed train ride is not running this year. However, Nicklawske says it will be back next year.
