Bob Dylan

Merry Christmas to Bob and to Bob a good night

Remember back a few months ago when we went a little BobDylan crazy? Here's the proof. What nutty times those were! But it was all for a great cause. Proceeds from Bob's Christmas album, "Christmas in the Heart" benefit Feeding America, the national food bank network of which the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is a proud member. We can tell by the handy stats we get that many of you who stop by Behind-The -Scenes at the Food Shuttle blog are  looking for the latest news on Bob. We're happy to be associated with him.  We know that Bob Dylan, unlike windbreaker undershirts, will never go out of fashion. The fact is we're too busy developing and operating innovative solutions to hunger to be able to cover Bob as extensively as you may like, but we can still help out now and again.

Here's the video for "Must be Santa", fresh from the new album. If you like it, pick up a few copies of "Christmas in the Heart" for your family and friends. It'll make a great gift and help fight hunger in the US (a problem that is getting worse, not better).

Hear it first on Oct. 13th: Bob Dylan's new album


The countdown has begun at the Food Shuttle for the listening party and release of Bob Dylan's new Christmas in the Heart album! Bob Dylan has decided to donated all U.S. royalties from the album sales to benefit Feeding America- the Nation's Food Bank Network. We've been talking about the album in a couple earlier posts: here and here.

Our friends at Boylan Bridge Brewpub will be hosting the party while we listen to Dylan's new holiday tunes. It will be a fun night to have a drink, enjoy great food, and meet other Bob Dylan fans in the Triangle.

Tell all your friends and come out to Boylan Bridge Brewpub on October 13th at 7:00.

See you there!

Bob Dylan Joins the Fight Against Hunger!

The coolest thing that I've ever seen in the world of hunger relief is happening right now.  Bob Dylan has announced that the US royalties from the sales of his upcoming album of holiday songs will be donated to Feeding America.   The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is a proud member of Feeding America and we are super-excited about this partnership. Bob came to town recently on his tour of minor league ballparks. He played the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in July.  Several Food Shuttle staffers went and reported back a great show.  I had to miss it. I once drove 8 hours to see him on the Love and Theft tour when I was in college but couldn't make the one 45 minutes away.It would have been my 6th Dylan show dating back to the mid-90s.

But we'll make up for it here on the Behind the Scenes at the Food Shuttle blog.  We'll keep you updated on any more news around the album and we'll be posting some Dylan clips via Youtube up until the release. And there are rumors circulating that we may try to work with one of our great downtown Raleigh establishments to have an event around the October 13 release. We'll keep you posted.
