All day on May Day (May 1) everyone is invited to play at Ott & Murphy Wine Tasting Rooms (OM) first annual BOB DAY (Dylan turns 74 in May).
May Day Celebration begins at 1 p.m. with the inspiration of the labor protest that Guthrie s songs express. All day we’ll ramble through the great range of Bob s canon, and we’ve invited many fabulous OM Cabaret Stage regulars to honor Bob with special performances of their favorite Dylan songs today. OM offers wine & food specials to celebrate May Day.
At 6 p.m. we’ll evoke the intimate camaraderie of a small Greenwich Village club in 1961, as producers David Ossman & Judith Walcutt MC an open mike for Bob fans who will be encouraged to read their favorite lyric passages or honor him musically. Wear your best 60’s garb, bring your favorite lines, your friends and your young. No cover, but reservations suggested.
The BOB DAY Caberet starts at 7:30 p.m. Welcome the inspiration of folk-rock composer/singer and advocate for the homeless Beverly Graham, folk chanteuse Karin Blaine, and soulful songstress Joni Takanikos. Listen to the poetic beat of Stephen Roxborough and the performance of Max Cole-Takanikos who’ll lift us with The Word of Bob and David Ossman’s recollection of close encounters with Bob himself. Audience participation anticipated plus a surprise guest you won’t want to miss: the best Bob ever! There is a $10 Evening Cabaret cover charge (includes a $2 donation to drewslist for inspiring community every day). Reservations: 360 221-7131. Ott-Murphy Tasting Room is located at 204 1st Street, Langley, WA 98260
