Bob DylanThe Filament Theatre Ensemble is presenting the Bob Dylan Birthday Bash, a celebration and concert featuring performances by local musicians of some of the legendary singer/songwriter’s classic songs, on Saturday, May 18 starting at 7:30pm at the Filament space.

The event will be hosted by Tom Jackson, who has been celebrating Dylan’s birthday on Chicago’s WLUW for over fifteen years, and is the primary host of “Somebody Else’s Troubles”, a roots music show that broadcasts on WLUW on Saturday mornings at 11:00. Performers are set to include Dan Aranda, David Bragman, Bucky Halker, Luke Heiden, Tom Jackson, Laura Joy, Peter Oyloe, and more. The concert will be in the style of a folk hootenanny, with each performer taking multiple turns in a “round robin”.

The Bob Dylan Birthday Bash is part of Filament Theatre Ensemble’s ongoing special programming in its unfinished new theatre space at 4041 North Milwaukee Avenue in the Portage Park neighborhood. Admission is free of charge, donations welcome. All proceeds from donations will go to Filament to help fund the build-out of their theatre. Please join us in celebrating the life and legacy of one of popular music’s greatest artists.
