Poster for Simply Dylan showing tour dates and an illustration of Bob Dylan

A musical journey  through the career of one of the world’s most iconic songwriters.

John O’Connell’s Simply Dylan band returns in 2021 for a brand new headline tour to celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th Birthday.

As straightforward as the title suggests – no frills, no gimmicks, no pretence – Simply Dylan is John’s personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan. O’Connell, formerly of Groundpig, his name indelibly written into the tapestry of Liverpool’s music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians to form his Dylan band.

The combination of the band delivering high energy renditions of the prodigious songwriter’s work, and John skilfully singing and enunciating the lyrics, has seen the project go from recognising Dylan’s 70th Birthday, to selling out the Cavern Club six times, to receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK, and most recently having the privilege to open the Isle of Wight Festival in 2019 on the Big Top stage.
