Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m.—RUTLAND—Legendary folksinger Bob Dylan’s son Jakob Dylan and his group The Wallflowers will appear at the Paramount Theater Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m.
As part of the mid-90s revival of roots-rock, the Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers than original 60s folk-rock, though lyrically, Dylan remains a close companion to his father’s songwriting.
Dylan’s second album, “Bringing Down the Horse,” recorded in 1996 with producer T-Bone Burnett, produced the alternative radio hit “6th Avenue Heartache,” followed by “One Headlight,” which became a Top 10 hit in 1997. Early in 1998, “One Headlight” won Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal.
After some time off, occasional releases and changes in the band, early in 2012 Dylan announced the Wallflowers were returning to active status with a new lineup featuring a returning keyboard player Rami Jaffee, bassist Greg Richling, guitarist Stuart Mathis, and drummer Jack Irons, who previously played with Pearl Jam and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Tickets are $35, $45, $55, and $65 and are available at the Paramount box office, 30 Center St., Rutland; charge-by-phone by calling 802-775-0903; or purchase online at paramountvt.org. For more information call the Paramount at 802-775-0570.
