The Englert is proud to present This Wheel’s on Fire, an event celebrating the music and words of Bob Dylan and a benefit for the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature, live on Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m. Sponsored by Urban Acres and University of Iowa Community Credit Union.
Featuring David Zollo & the Body Electric, BF Burt, Greg Brown, The Recliners, Brian Johannesen, Elizabeth Moen, Ingrid Streitz, and more, all performing works spanning Dylan’s career. This event brings together some of our essential Iowan performers and songwriters who will reinterpret Dylan’s catalog through their own voices and perspectives. The program will span the wide breadth of Dylan’s career from his beginnings as a folk music icon to his current reflections on life in the modern age.
Net proceeds from this event will support Iowa City’s UNESCO City of Literature. The City of Literature works to advance its mission of celebrating and supporting literature on a local, regional, national, and international level, connecting readers and writers through the power of story.
