Rodney Crowell in Conversation with Jeff Slate
We will celebrate the close of the first day of Dylan@80 with a special keynote event featuring award-winning songwriter and chart-topping performer Rodney Crowell. He’ll join journalist Jeff Slate for an hour-long conversation about what makes Dylan’s work so unique–and so influential. The event will be free-flowing and offer an insider’s view of Crowell’s own writing process and how it has been shaped by his own deep dives into Dylan’s ever-changing, ever-evolving work. This will give us all a chance to step back from narrow academic questions in order to better understand how Dylan’s work continues to shape that of other artists to form part of a living, expanding tradition.
