Rory neemt even afstand van haar bekroonde Power Women of The Blues-serie, waarin ze op haar drie meest recente albums het licht heeft laten schijnen op vrouwelijke songwriters en performers, en zet haar vaardigheden als fingerpicker en traditionele bluesarrangeur in voor een van de meest gerespecteerde artiesten en songwriters aller tijden: Bob Dylan. Rory bespeelt zelf alle instrumenten en combineert akoestische gitaren, slide-gitaren, drums en akoestische bas tot een uniek arrangement van Dylans songboek.

“Probably the most persistent and enthusiastic requests from my fans for anything outside of the blues genre has been the repeated calls to record a Bob Dylan tribute. As with all my recordings, the songs that move me the most deeply, touching heart and soul, are the ones I choose to record.”– Rory Block

Taking a break from her award-winning Power Women of The Blues series, which has shone a light on women songwriters and performers over her three most recent albums, Rory throws her skills as a finger-picker and traditional blues arranger behind one of the greatly respected leading artists and songwriter of all-time: Bob Dylan. Performing all instruments herself, Rory combines acoustic and slide guitars, as well as drums and acoustic bass, to create a one-of-a kind arrangement of Dylan’s songbook.

Rory Block is a Gold-album selling and 7-time Blues Music Award winner, widely regarded as the top female performer of traditional country-blues. Rory’s commitment as a blues preservationist with an ear for finding the soul of every song she performs has rewarded her with accolades from the blues and roots music community.
