Dylan Cover #136 Marc Broussard & Friends "You Ain't Going Nowhere" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Marc Broussard & Friends playing "You Ain't Going Nowhere"

This month our Dylan Cover Series will focus on artists playing The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Marc Broussard will be playing the Acura Stage on Saturday May 3rd at 12:15pm
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed this cover:
A great song, and one that sounds so simple.  It always felt to me that these are the kind of songs Dylan has seeping out of his pores, with lines like "Tailgates and Substitutes" that anywhere else would sound foolish yet here works wonders.  The musical backing from the original Band version is loose and matched fantastically with the lyrics.  I am sure it wasn't as easy going as it sounds on the final version, but what a gem of a track.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We are not familiar with Broussard but it seems he comes from fantastic Louisiana Musical stock. We are hoping to catch him for the first time on Saturday before Allen Toussaint plays on the Acura Stage.      
Thoughts on Cover:
A fun romp through a whimsical tune. Granted I kind of cheated here as Marc only sings back ups but I wanted to focus on a someone new for the site and give yet another live rendition of a Dylan cover for this monthly showcase. One thing that makes the world special, live music, lets keep it rolling, see you in NOLA.
