I had been to BobWiz the previous night and was originally planning to go on the Saturday and the gospel songs show on the Sunday. Van Walker recommended I go on the Friday instead and the gospel songs show was postponed so I changed it slightly.

The last tribute night to Bob Dylan at the Caravan was back in 2011 and was notable for Vika and Linda singing with Joe Camilleri on a song amongst other things. The shows were selling quite well and Robyn Hitchcock was added to the bill so that sealed it.

There were quite a few people who had been to BobWiz the night before returning for this night. Except for the artists and Caravan staff I am not sure if anyone went to all four nights, most people seemed to be happy to just go to the BobWiz and one of the nights. There seemed to be quite a few people across the weekend at the gigs who had not been before, which is always good.

Despite not being familiar with Bob Dylan outside his bigger songs I still enjoyed the night and there was a good flow to the songs.

I couldn't really pick a favourite out of all the performers, but did like the sing along at the end.

It was a great night and hopefully the gospel songs show is able to be put on soon.
