Gemma Hayes is one of the acts invited to kick off a year of festivities to celebrate Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday next year
Hayes will be part of special Glasgow concert on January 24 at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
Dylan will be 70 on May 24, and other artists joining Hayes in Glasgow include Tim O’Brien, Josh Rouse, Rosanne Cash, Laura Cantrell, and Rab Noakes.
