Bob Dylan – Nobel Laureate

In a major shock, Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Brize for Literature.

It was announced a short time ago.

He is the first musician to win the award.

He won the award because he “created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.

Well Deserved

I must say that it is very well deserved.

It’s a growing list of awards he has won.

Earlier this year he won the French Legion of Honour which is their highest award and is rarely given to foreigners.

A man who lives locally also has won of those – John Hume.

DylanFest on the Lough

We run, in Moville, what the overseas musicians. like Al Diesan from Sardinia, tell us is the biggest festival of Dylan music in the world.

Maybe one day he will come and visit us.

It’s great to see that he has won it anyway.
