This isn’t the first time that Adam Goldstein, Avourneen’s lead guitarist and vocalist, has tackled Dylan’s masterpiece. In 2013, Goldstein performed the album as part of Twist and Shout’s “On the Cover” concert series, playing all 10 tracks solo with only guitar and harmonica as accompaniment. In 2018, Goldstein joined a full band and played a sold-out performance at Denver’s historic Swallow Hill venue. The upcoming performance at the Clocktower will feature the same expanded approach to the musical tribute, featuring Avourneen band members CL Morden on violin and keyboards and bassist Kenny Martinez, as well as guest musician Christopher Rose on drums.
Since forming in 2014, Avourneen has rapidly gained a reputation as one of Colorado’s most active and accomplished Celtic acts. They’ve been a regular feature of high-profile events like the Colorado Irish Festival and the Cheyenne Celtic Festival, and they’ve played venues across the West. The members of the band boast a wide range of experience in all genres, from classical music to contemporary pop tunes. At their heart, however, Avourneen is an Irish act. According to Goldstein, there’s a strong link between the traditional music of Ireland and the more modern stylings of Dylan, a Nobel Prize winner and one of America’s best-known folk masters.
“Irish balladry is all about good storytelling, and that’s one of Dylan’s greatest strengths,” Goldstein said. “The intricate, involved tales on ‘Blood on the Tracks’ echo the narrative folk tradition of Ireland, and his instrumentation on that record is right up Avourneen’s alley. It’s all about compelling stories backed up by equally compelling acoustic music.”
Avourneen will return to the Clocktower for the performance, and the venue has a special significance for Goldstein, who’s been playing at the venue for over a decade. Avourneen is excited to return to one of its favorite Denver venues to bring ‘Blood on the Tracks’ to life.
