A Tribute to Billy Hallquist and Salute to the Music of Bob Dylan

There are two free music events coming up on July 29 in Maple Grove, MN and August 1 in St. Louis Park, MN. These are a Tribute to Billy Hallquist and also the Salute to the Music of Bob Dylan. Billy is in a fight against cancer and he got these musicians together every year to play Dylan tunes and fundraising for a good cause. Now these great musicians will play for Billy and Bob.

For years Billy has played a central role in organizing musicians for free concerts to raise money for organizations like Guitars for Vets and the Armory Arts and Music Center. His musician friends are now wishing to give back to the man who gave so much. Everyone I have talked to who has been to these shows in years past says they are a great time. Certainly the Northland shows have been phenomenal.

To place a reminder about these concerts on your Facebook Events page.

May the music keep you ever young.
