Veteran rocker Steve Gibbons, in the company of Fairport Convention’s legendary rhythm section - Gerry Conway (drums) and Dave Pegg (bass) - join Phil Bond (piano, organ, accordion) and PJ Wright’s pedal steel and slide guitars to create an evening of Bob’s songs, artfully arranged and played by world-class musicians who now celebrate sixteen years of the Dylan Project.
Their repertoire spans the whole half-century of Dylan's work – from “Don’t think Twice” and others from the Freewheelin’ album - through to such highlights of his later-flowering career as “Cold Irons Bound” and “Mississippi.” Even Bob's fallow periods yield unexpected gems but Dylan’s mid-sixties golden period is fully and lovingly represented.
The idea came about after a chance meeting between Steve Gibbons and Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg. Back in Birmingham in the mid 1960s they had been together in a band called the Uglys and are both confirmed Dylan fans. Steve invited PJ Wright, his guitarist in the Gibbons Band, Dave asked drummer Gerry Conway and Simon Nicol from Fairport, and they recorded the first Dylan Project CD in 1998. With the occasional addition of John "Rabbit" Bundrick from the Who's touring band, this lineup stayed together until 2006, when Simon was replaced by Phil Bond, who had played keyboards on the second Dylan Project album recorded the previous year.
Now in their sixteenth year on the road, the band comprises:-
