Matt Borello and Art Tebbetts return to the Third Fret Coffeehouse at Cotuit Center for the Arts on Saturday, May 12, for another Bob Dylan Birthday Bash. Dylan turns 71 on May 24.
Mr. Borello and Mr. Tebbetts celebrated Dylan’s 70th birthday there last year, each offering his own take on some of Dylan’s best-loved songs. The event was so well-received that the two are continuing the tradition by honoring the legendary folk singer again this year.
Both accomplished folksingers in their own right, Borello and Tebbetts share a love of all things Dylan. The two met when Borrello took a class that Tebbetts was teaching at the UMass Dartmouth.
A seasoned performer, Tebbetts has long been a fan of Dylan and his songs. He hosts an Open Mic in his hometown of New Bedford, which is where he first had the idea to sit down with Borello and share their large repertoire of Dylan songs.
Borrello is a singer-songwriter from Southeastern Massachusetts. A relative newcomer to the folk music scene, he performs regularly in the Boston/Providence area, often as a solo acoustic act, but also with other songwriters or his band, the Quality Dogs. He has won recognition in various New England talent showcases and songwriting contests in New England, most notably at the Boston Folk Festival Youth Songwriting Contest.
The Third Fret Coffeehouse is presented as a partnership between the arts center and Trespass Music and offers an intimate experience for music lovers: an opportunity to hear nationally touring songwriters in the warm and friendly environment of the center’s Art Studio Building, the Art Barn. Light refreshments are available to enjoy during the show.
Doors open at 7 PM and the concert begins at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $20, $15 for members, and may be purchased by calling 508-428-0669 or at ArtsOnTheCape.org. The Art Barn is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit.
