Jakob Dylan to Play State Theatre
The State Theatre recently announced that Jakob Dylan, folk singer/songwriter, will be playing a show in support of his upcoming second solo album, Women and Country, on May 21, 2010.
On the Jakob Dylan and Three Legs tour, Dylan will be accompanied by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan. Both Case and Hogan provided backing vocals to several of the tracks on Dylan’s upcoming album, which is being produced long time partner T-Bone Burnett and is schedule for an April 6 release date.
Although the show is scheduled for after finals week, Kristy Cyone, the marketing director for The State Theatre, does not believe this will have a negative impact on student turnout.
“We believe there will be a great response to bringing this tour to Happy Valley,” says Cyone, who believes Dylan’s popularity will also draw a large number of community members. “I would recommend getting tickets early and not taking a chance on a sellout, because it’s a very good possibility.”
The lead singer and songwriter of The Wallflowers, Dylan embarked on his solo career in 2006 after signing with Columbia Records. His first album, Seeing Things, was released in 2008.
The State Theatre calls Dylan’s upcoming album “soulful, yet striking and ripe with sublime beauty.”
Tickets for the Jakob Dylan show go on sale to general public at 11 a.m. on April 9, 2010 and can be purchased at The State Theatre’s website.
