Carolina Connections Daytime Enrichment Class: Doomed to Love You: the Music of Bob Dylan Sung and ExplainedTHURSDAY OCT 27, 10 AM–NOONINSTRUCTORS: PETER WHITE WITH THE BOB DYLAN REGULARS PERFORMING

We walk the earth with a modern Shakespeare! Since the start of his professional career in 1961 in Greenwich Village, during what musician Dave van Ronk called “the great folk scare”, Bob Dylan has written over 500 songs and has gone through so many phases and transitions that seven different actors played him in the 2007 movie, I’m Not There. Mr. Dylan has released 37 studio albums, 12 albums in the bootleg series, and 11 live albums, poems, several books, and is, in his 75th year, still touring all over the world. Besides Grammies, Golden Globe, and an Oscar, he has received honorary degrees, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Pulitzer Prize, and the Polar Music Prize. He’s even won a Nobel Prize in literature, though like Shakespeare himself, the Nobel is unlikely to go to someone who combines entertainment and performance with art in such a mass-cultural way.

We celebrate Bob Dylan’s 75th through songs (and singing along!), combined with brief academic notes, from all phases: folk, protest, introspection, rock and roll, country, mid-life changes, Christian, post-Christian, and ongoing search for wisdom and meaning.

The Bob Dylan Regulars will perform: Peter White (UNC Biology), Marc Abrams (UNC Marine Sciences), Howard Lander (UNC Renaissance Computing Institute), George Michaels (Musician, Raleigh), David McKnight (North Carolina Writer and Musician, Durham), Marie Vanderbeck (Vocalist and Musician, Orange County), and other special guests . . . though Mr. Dylan himself is unlikely and will appear in spirit only.

Peter White is an ecologist and a Professor in the Department of Biology at UNC – Chapel Hill.  He has been known to quote Bob Dylan in his lectures and posts Dylan quotes for studying, exams, and graduation on his class website. He plays music with friends in the Triangle Folk Jam every Monday night.

Fee: $10. UNC Retired Faculty Association Members: $5.
