The American rock’n’roll legend joins Hothouse Flower and fellow Dylan disciple, Fiachna Ó Braonáin to explore her deep love and respect for a man whose music has touched so many.
During the early months of the pandemic Chrissie Hynde and her Pretenders bandmate James Walbourne decided to use the time paying homage to Dylan – because time is what was needed. The resulting Bob Dylan Lockdown Series was listened to by hundreds of thousands.
Chrissie Hynde joins broadcaster, Hothouse Flower, and fellow Dylan disciple, Fiachna Ó Braonáin to chat about her love for the Nobel laureate and icon. She will reveal the terrifying business of reinterpreting the work of a legend and how it might influence her own music-making when the lockdown allows her to hit the road again.
This event is presented in partnership with the Festival of Writing and Ideas.
