Al Diesan DylanFest Return
The first Al Diesan DylanFest gig for two years will take place in Rosatos on Thursday the 22nd of August. Al had to miss last year because of injury. As Al is arguably the best Dylan act in the world he was sorely missed.
Indeed one local Dylan fan, who has seen Dylan over 20 times, said, “I think I prefer to see and hear Al nowadays than Bob Dylan.” When reminded about it a few days later he said “well maybe I went a bit far”. But maybe he didn’t.
Al Diesan Comes All the Way from Italy
Al flies in every year he can make it from Calgliari in Sardinia off the coast of Italy. To get here and get back home again Al has to get six planes two buses and two taxis. He opens up the festival on the Thursday night and close it on the Sunday night.
It is his annual pilgrimage. He has been to most of the Dylan festivals across the world, including the big one in California where he was the first non-American to play.
Here is where Al will be playing:-
Thu 9:30 – Rosatos (Moville)
Fri – 9:30 – McGrory’s (Culdaff
Sat 10pm – Ferryport (Greencastle)
Sun 9:30 – Rosatos
