The show opens with "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)", from Renee's CD "The Fourteenth of February", which leads into a talk about the cinematic component of Dylan's music. Then Andy and Renee discuss Dylan's creative process, and offer thoughts on the subject by Robbie Robertson of The Band from his book "Testimony". A conversation about inspiration and process leads to the song, Mr. Tambourine Man, and we hear their version from Dylanfest 2015 featuring Andy & Renee & Hard Rain and vocalists Dave Crossland and John Hoke. The duo ends the podcast with information about their upcoming 27th Annual Dylanfest, an 8-hour concert held at The Torrance Cultural Arts Center Sunday, May 7th from 12-8pm. The concert features Andy & Renee & their band, Hard Rain and 55 other area musicians playing songs written by the Nobel Laureate winning Dylan.
