Dylan Live

Dylan Lives! Unless you have been living in a bubble, you must have noticed that this year is Dylan Thomas's centenary. There are numerous events going on- but here at CREW, we promote our own. Professor (and jazz musician) Daniel Williams will be lecturing on Dylan Thomas's influence in America as part of a bilingual performance incorporating jazz, hip hop, poetry and spoken word. The thought-provoking lecture will be interrupted by contemporary rap, spoken word and jazz performances by some of Wales’ leading musicians and poets, including poets, Martin Daws, Aneirin Karadog and Zaru Jonson, jazz musician Huw V Williams and hip hop artist Ed Holden, all of whom have been influenced by Dylan in some way or another. An exclusive film by Ewan Morris Jones will also provide a breath-taking visual backdrop to the show.
