Singer Kesha, who was in the news for her legal battle against music producer Dr. Luke, will return to the stage next month for a two-day tribute festival to honour iconic musician Bob Dylan.
Dylan is throwing a bash to celebrate his 75th birthday and he has asked several musicians, including Kesha, to join the line-up of performers for the event named Dylan Fest.
The 29-year-old is no stranger to Dylan’s music. In 2011, she did a cover of “Don’t think twice, it’s alright”, which was written by the veteran musician originally for his 1963 album, “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan”.
Dylan Fest is scheduled to take place on May 23 and May 24, the latter being the day Dylan turns 75, at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Kacey Musgraves, City and Colour, Kurt Vile, Jason Isbell and Ann Wilson are other names enlisted for the festival, which will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of 1966’s “Blonde on Blonde”, Dylan’s first album recorded entirely in Nashville.
Tickets for the event go on sale this Saturday. The two-day show will benefit Thistle Farms, a Nashville charity that supports women who have survived addiction, trafficking and prostitution.
