Bob Dylan, Princes Street, Edinburgh 1966 (print 2011)
  • Scottish Art
Dylan’s famous World Tour of 1966 included venues in Glasgow and Edinburgh. His photographer, Barry Feinstein, has captured him striding down Princes Street, perhaps en route to the city’s ABC Theatre. A key figure in various protest movements of the early 1960s, Dylan was increasingly controversial as his music turned away from its folk and acoustic roots to use electric instruments. According to some reports, at his Edinburgh concert he was confronted by folk purists in the audience who heckled him and attempted to drown out his band by playing their harmonicas.
