Dylan Cover #272 Margo Price "Wallflower" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Margo Price doing a live cover of "Wallflower" 
This month we have a special focus on Artists who will be playing the 2017 Jazzfest in New Orleans. Today we highlight country music singer Margo Price who will play the Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage on Friday May 5th

Thoughts on Original:
Written in 1971 but not available to the ears until twenty years after the fact on the amazing Bootleg Vol 1-3, "Wallflower" is a sweet simple ditty that captures Bob in his folk/country phase of Self Portrait and New Morning. While not his deepest or most intense song it is a fine relaxed number that waltzes wonderfully light and free.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We dig Margo Price and have ever since we checked out her newest record and she made our top ten last year. She's got a cool backstory, but more importantly she's got the voice and songwriting to back it up. We will be at the festival on Friday the 4th and we can't wait to catch her on the best folk/Americana stage the fest offers.   

Thoughts on Cover:
It is a standard run through that is elevated by great piano work and the fine vocals of Price. While not earth shattering it will do for this Monday.
