An influential American musician and singer-songwriter, Bob Dylan became known for his early songs that became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. With a desire to defy existing pop music conventions Dylan altered the parameters of popular music and has both amplified and personalized musical genres.
Throughout his recording career, spanning fifty years, he has explored many of the traditions in American song—from folk, blues and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and swing. Dylan has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
Dawes is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, composed of brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, along with Wylie Gelber and Tay Strathairn. Dawes was formed from the band Simon Dawes after the departure of co-songwriter Blake Mills, subsequently abandoning a post-punk sound in favor of folk rock. They recently were special guests at the Mumford and Sons concert at PPAC earlier this Fall in Providence.
