Tempest, Bob Dylan’s 35th studio album, was released by Columbia Records in September 2012. The album of all new material, written by Dylan, received critical and popular acclaim, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The wide range of songs present on Tempest, from the 14-minute long, RMS Titanic-envoking title track “Tempest”, to the bluesy “Narrow Way” showcase yet again that Dylan is a true master of his craft. Rolling Stone gave Tempest five stars and said the record is “...a reminder that Dylan now stands virtually alone among his 1960s peers. His own final act, meanwhile, rolls on. It’s a thing to behold.”
Wilco is a Chicago sextet formed by singer-songwriter and guitarist Jeff Tweedy in the mid-1990s. The band’s current lineup solidified in 2004 when Nels Cline and Patrick Sansone joined Tweedy, John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche and Mikael Jorgensen. The band’s 10-album catalog includes 2002’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (named one of the 500 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone), 2005’s Grammy award-winning A Ghost is Born, the Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album) and The Whole Love and more. The Wilco catalog includes Mermaid Avenue Volumes 1, 2 and 3, which, in collaboration with British folk singer Billy Bragg, sets original music to song lyrics by the iconic Woody Guthrie.
From psychedelic to soul to classic rock and roll, My Morning Jacket’s range fills out the heart of the AmericanaramA Festival of Music lineup. The Louisville quintet released the first of six albums in 1999 with their last two, 2008’s Evil Urges and 2011’s Circuital each receiving Grammy nominations - the latter debuting at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The band features Jim James, Tom Blankenship, Patrick Hallahan, Carl Broemel and Bo Koster.
AmericanaramA Festival of Music featuring Bob Dylan and his Band with Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Richard Thompson Electric Trio is part of the Belle Tire Concert Series.
