From www.staugamphitheatre.com: “Bob Dylan has been an influential singer-songwriter and popular culture figure for over 50 years. Dylan has released over 40 albums, which combined have sold over 110 million records worldwide.  As a songwriter and musician, Dylan has received numerous awards including multiple GRAMMY Awards (most notably Album of the Year in 1998), a Golden Globe, and an Academy Award. Dylan has also been inducted into many prestigious societies including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Dylan was awarded the Kennedy Center Honor by President Clinton in 1997, and in 1998, the Pulitzer Prize jury awarded him a special citation for “his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.” Dylan has also received the Commandeur de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, which is the highest cultural award bestowed by the French Government. In May 2012, Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

The next two years brought acclaimed entries in the ongoing Bootleg Series — 2013 saw the release of Another Self Portrait (1969-1971), which restored the reputation of a much-maligned era, and 2014 saw the long-awaited appearance of The Basement Tapes Complete — and then Dylan threw a curveball for his next studio album. Released on February 3, 2015, Shadows in the Nightfound the singer/songwriter devoting himself to selections from the Great American Songbook in the pre-rock & roll era. Every one of the ten songs had previously been recorded by Frank Sinatra, and Dylan’s album was his version of Sinatra’s saloon songs, arranged by his own touring band.”
