Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previously advertised programme of artists from Chch (Dames Do Dylan) has had to be cancelled. However, this very special event produced by Eileen Marciana Reid has been reorganised to include a number of local Dunedin musicians to present a special tribute to poet/singer/songwriter, Nobel Prize for Literature winner, Bob Dylan, in celebration of his 80th Birthday. The Set List features a selection of lesser-known but highly significant gems among Dylan's prolific yield, with a fair sprinkling of faves from across the years.
As Covid travels down the country and gets closer to us, the committee has been deciding how best to keep our members safe while at the same time continuing to operate. We are aware that we have people in our community who have compromised health and we want to give people opportunities to perform as well as enjoying those performances. Therefore we have studied the government's traffic light system and decided that the best way we can do this is to require all attendees and performers to be double vaccinated. Masks are required when you are up and moving - you can remove them when seated.
We understand and respect that everyone has the right to make their own choices and are aware some members of our community may have preferences that do not align with these requirements. However, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all attendees and this is our highest priority.
