Come gather 'round people wherever you roam! On Saturday May 20th, Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its 7th annual celebration of the music of Bob Dylan. This has been a big year for Dylan. In December of 2016 he received the Nobel Prize in Literature and in March he released a triple album of classic American standards. At 75, Bob also continues to tour worldwide. To celebrate his continued success, our show this year will be a double feature. The early show will focus on his early acoustic material, especially his songs of social unrest and political protest. The later show will focus on Dylan's most literary and poetic songs from throughout his six decade career. Both shows will feature the Dylan-interpreting talents of Art Tebbetts, Danielle Miraglia, and Matt Borrello. For the later show, they will be accompanied by a full band. This is not a show to miss.
Borrello and Tebbetts share a love for the music of Bob Dylan. Both are accomplished folk singers. Tebbetts hosts an Open Mic in his hometown of New Bedford, which is where he and Borrello first got together share their large repertoire of Dylan songs.
Born and raised in the small Southeastern Massachusetts town of Dighton, Borrello started playing guitar at 14. Now in his mid-20s, he usually performs as a solo acoustic act and writes songs that often blend political and personal themes.
Danielle Miraglia has been described as a dynamic and captivating musician, who “comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson” and “sings with gutsy passion, blows a man harp, and writes songs both tender and timely.” She grew up in Revere, but is steeped in the Delta Blues, and has shared the stage with Johnny Winter, Bettye Lavette, John Hammond Jr., Joan Osborne, John Mayall, Sonny Landreth, John Oates, Colin Hay, Robert Cray, Rodney Crowell and many more and is a frequent guest of The James Montgomery Blues Band.
