MUSICIAN OF THE HALF TERM
Name: Bob Dylan
DoB: 24th May 1941
Bob Dylan (who was actually named Robert Allen Zimmerman) was born in St Mary's Hospital on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota.
In his early years, he listened to the radio, first to blues and country stations and later, when he was a teenager, to rock and roll. He formed several bands while attending Hibbing High School.
Dylan moved to Minneapolis in September 1959 and enrolled at the University of Minnesota and he began to perform at the Ten O’clock Scholar, a coffeehouse a few blocks from campus. In May 1960, Dylan dropped out of college at the end of his first year. In January 1961, he travelled to New York City, to perform.
In October 1961, Dylan got a record deal with Columbia Records where his first album sold only 5,000 copies in its first year! Dylan made his first trip to the United Kingdom in December 1962 as his fame was rising. He visited London and played in many of the London folk clubs. In the mid-1960s Dylan’s recordings reached the top end of the United States music charts!
He is still writing and performing today. Dylan has been touring steadily since the late 1980s on what has been called the ‘Never Ending Tour’. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but song writing is considered his greatest skill.
Music in Ghana
During Mrs Barnes and Miss Bake's visit to Ghana, they were lucky enough to experience a wide range of African music! Music in Ghana is used for a variety of different reasons, for example, when celebrating, when worshipping or when getting ready for a football match! They also learnt that in Ghanaian history special drums were used that sounded like roaring animals so enemies were scared away!
