Dylan Cover #426 Brandi Carlile "The Times They Are A' Changin'" 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 Brandi Carlile  playing "The Times They Are a' Changin'"

This month (and the first Monday in May) we have a special focus on artists who will be playing the 2020 Jazzfest in New Orleans. Today we highlight Brandi Carlile who played this Sunday, April 26th.

Unfortunately due to the outbreak of Covid19, Jazzfest has been rescheduled for October (no official date as of yet). Hopefully all of the scheduled acts are healthy and will be performing then, but since we crafted these posts before the outbreak, RtBE will still post them this month and will regroup/revisit things in the fall when (hopefully) things return to semi-normal.

Update: the 2020 version of Jazzfest has been officially canceled

Thoughts on Original:
Short and sweet from the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Well it is his most famous song for a reason, it is one of the greatest ever produced in any genre, ever.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Brandi Carlile has been everywhere the last few years and RtBE has always enjoyed what we have heard from her.

Thoughts on Cover:
A slowly growing from solo acoustic to swell dramatic cover of one of the greatest songs ever written. Damn fine version.
