The 2nd Annual Bob Dylan Birthday Bash — he turns 71 on May 24 — includes performances by The Folka Dots, Ryan Tanner, The Trappers, Vena Cava and more. "I wouldn't be playing any music at all if he wasn't around," said Marie Bradshaw of The Folka Dots. "Everybody I've been influenced by has been influenced pretty profoundly by him. I don't even want to think about what wouldn't be around if he wasn't." Her bandmate Bronk Onion said: "His influence is more than just the songs he writes, but his approach to music, and how he always does what he feels he wants to do without worrying about how people will receive it. Dan Buehner of The Trappers will be performing "Forever Young," "I Shall Be Released" (dedicated to Levon Helm), and "Like A Rolling Stone." "I will never be able to get enough of Bob Dylan — his catalog is so deep and untouchable," Buehner said. "The first two Dylan albums I got into were 'Nashville Skyline' and 'Blonde On Blonde,' which are both amazing, but totally different from one another which makes him such a genius. After hearing those two albums, I knew I needed more. It was like an addiction, I had to hear everything."
