Michael Gray, is an acknowledged world authority on Bob Dylan’s work. His talks are lively, witty and acute, and mix surprising slices of music with a thoroughly entertaining, fresh account of music history and Dylan’s part in it. Michael’s book Song & Dance Man III: The Art of Bob Dylan has earned magnificent reviews. Called "essential" (Folk Roots), "overwhelming" (The Times), "an event" (Q), Andrew Motion picked it as one of the 3 best books of the year 2000.
