More Info: UNESCO City of Literature
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, April 28 at 7 p.m. Sponsored by Urban Acres, University of Iowa Community Credit Union, and Carpenter’s Local 1260.
Featuring Iris DeMent, William Elliott Whitmore, David Zollo & the Body Electric, Elizabeth Moen, BF Burt, Jason T. Lewis, The Recliners, and Ingrid Streitz, 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. The City of Literature is a nonprofit 501(c)3 that manages the Iowa City area’s designation as a UNESCO City of Literature.
