Positively 4th Street–

Dylan’s birthday at Franco’s.

Christopher Carithers at The Gamble Mill

Had a great time with Doug McMinn Friday night at Franco’s Lounge , playing ALL DYLAN ALL NIGHT  in honor of Bob’s birthday. It’s great to hear a gifted guy like Doug re-invent awesome tunes as slide blues!

When did you discover Dylan? For me, it was Sept. ’93. My first concert… Bob Dylan and Santana! After a broken tie rod en route to Scranton, we talked the tow truck driver into a ride to Montage. Dylan played one of my future favorites that day, Every Grain of Sand.
