Bob Dylan – Outlaw Blues by Spencer Leigh (featuring Ian McNabb)

Please note: It is with a heavy heart that we have had to cancel this event due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.

Legendary broadcaster and author Spencer Leigh will be presenting an evening where he discusses his new book, Bob Dylan: Outlaw Blues.

Spencer will be giving his unique insight and overview of the life of Bob Dylan in the Concert Room of St George’s Hall on Thursday 9 July 2020.

Accompanying Spencer will be the fantastic Ian McNabb (formerly of the Icicle Works) who will be singing the works of Dylan, for what is sure to be a truly magical and memorable evening.

This promises a fresh take on this famous yet elusive personality, a one-man hall of mirrors who continues to intrigue his followers worldwide.

It will be an in-depth account with new information and fascinating opinions, both from the author and his interviewees. Whether you like Dylan or not, we think you will be gripped from beginning to end by this remarkable tale, a true story which reads like fiction.

Spencer Leigh is an acclaimed biographer and journalist who also presents his own weekly radio show, On The Beat, for BBC Radio Merseyside. McNidder and Grace has published seven books by him – a study of the Beatles’ recordings (Love Me Do To Love Me Don’t), the dramatic sacking of Pete Best (Best Of The Beatles), the day-to-day story of the world’s most famous club (The Cavern) and biographies of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Simon and Garfunkel, all of which remain in print. His biography of Buddy Holly: Learning the Game has also recently been published.

Bob Dylan: Outlaw Blues is a true story, a story of the life of a man that intrigues his audience – both young and old. Most performers create their work for public approval, but at the centre of this book is a mercurial man who doesn’t trust his own audience. If he feels he is getting too much acclaim, he is likely to veer off in another direction. Inevitably, he has slowed down because of age, vocal restrictions and the ability to play a guitar, but he doesn’t want to be a nostalgia act and so is very different from Paul McCartney, Elton John or the Rolling Stones.
