ELECTRIC 50 - BOB DYLAN JUDAS REDUX LINE-UP ANNOUNCED

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s incendiary ‘Judas’ gig at Manchester Free Trade Hall - a gig that has has been hailed as one of the twenty most important moments in rock history, the electrifying night the young American poet clashed head on with the traditionalist die-hards of the folk scene.

Manchester District Music Archive is celebrating this outstanding event with a fundraising concert of our own, to be held on Tuesday 17th May 2016 at a city centre venue (TBC).

The evening will see Dylan’s set list from that night performed by a collection of Manchester’s finest musicians, each group or performer playing one song from the original 1966 concert.
