Based on a myth that Bob Dylan spent his childhood in Gallup, the town claims and celebrates him as one of its own, this year via Zoom.

This is the fourth year Gallup will celebrate the folk/rock troubadour’s music and poetry with a concert featuring local and regional musicians.

The June 21 concert line-up includes four acts.

2 pm-2:30 pm: Guitar duo McManus & Juda will kick off the concert. The two have performed at Doin’ Dylan every year since it began.

2:30 pm-3 pm: Local singer/songwriter Kornell Johns, who sometimes performs around town with the country band Twang Deluxe.

3 pm-4 pm: This group comes together each year for this concert. Hear Daniel Murphy on guitar and vocals with the band out of Santa Fe on bass guitar and drums.

4 pm-5 pm: Singer/songwriter Joe West & Friends will celebrate Dylan in their own theatrical style.

Doin’ Dylan is made possible by a New Mexico Tour grant from the New Mexico Music Commission and New Mexico Arts.
