About the show

On Friday, July 29th, 1966, Bob Dylan crashed his Triumph 500 motorcycle on a road in Woodstock, an artists’ colony in upstate New York. And then he disappeared. For ten days, as Dylan recovered privately in the house of a local doctor, few people knew if he was dead or alive. When he resurfaced, he was transformed. He looked different. He sounded different. What exactly happened to Bob Dylan during those ten days? Was he actually recovering from injuries sustained in the accident? Detoxing from heavy drug use? Was he suffering a mental breakdown, having just completed a polarizing world tour and released a game-changing double album? Or, as Dylan himself suggested in an extremely unorthodox interview decades later, had he actually undergone…transfiguration? Part true crime, part historical fiction, part spoken word lo-fi beat noir brought to you by Jake Brennan, and featuring the fictionalized voices of numerous transfigured versions of Bob Dylan, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS sounds like nothing you’ve heard before. Because you can’t push the needle into the red without leaving a little blood on the tracks.
