dylan fest 2013

The folks behind 2012’s Petty Fest are bringing the one-night artist celebration event back to San Francisco, this time to honor Bob Dylan, and raise money for musicians facing illness, disability or age-related health issues.

A handful of tickets remain for Wednesday’s Dylan Fest at the Great American Music Hall.

The star-studded cast this year will include Nicki Bluhm, Boots Riley, The Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston, Sly & The Family Stone’s Cynthia Robinson and Jerry Martini, Heartless Bastards’ Erika Wennerstrom, Kelley Stoltz and many others. The special event will feature various on-stage collaborations and interpretations of Bob Dylan’s songs. The Cabin Down Below Band will serve as the house band for the evening.

A similar show in New York last week raised $25,000 for Sweet Relief, the organization that helps musicians in need. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly into the organization’s fund.
