Following festival appearances this summer including Isle Of Wight, John O’Connell’s Simply Dylan will be back in 2020 for a brand new headline tour across the UK.

As straightforward as the title suggests; no frills, no gimmicks, no pretence; Simply Dylan is John O’Connell’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan.

It is the band’s precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan’s work that has gone from a modest project recognising Dylan’s 70th Birthday in 2011 to selling out the Cavern Club six times, receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK and igniting a new wave of passion for one of the world’s most prodigious song writers.

John O’Connell, formerly of Groundpig who leads Simply Dylan, has had his name indelibly written in to the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan Band.
