The Bard’s birthday is upon us once again: Bob Dylan turns 74 this Sunday. And on that day, to honor the poet laureate of American popular music—as well as raise money toward some great causes—the Bearsville Theater will host the seventh annual Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration, which benefits Woodstock's Crisis Hotline and the John Herald Fund for musicians in need.

Performing Dylan’s songs at the gala this year are his early running buddy Happy Traum, as well as Traum’s fellow local greats Jerry Marotta, Zach Djankian, Shear/Shazar (Jules Shear and Pal Shazar), Eric Redd, the Stacks, Lindsey Webster, and many more. Additionally, there will be raffles to win one of photographer Elliott Landy’s renowned images of Dylan and a signed print of artist Milton Glaser’s iconic pop art Dylan poster.

Here, Happy Traum, Larry Campbell, and others play “Buckets of Rain” at 2012’s event:

The seventh annual Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration will take place at the Bearsville Theater in Bearsville, New York, on May 24 at 8pm. Tickets are $45, $65, and $100. For more information, call (845) 679-4406 or visit http://www.bearsvilletheater.com/about.
