Imperial Theatre – Just Like A Woman – Songs of Bob Dylan

Come celebrate the release of  Just like a Woman – Songs of Bob Dylan – Jessica Rhaye’s sixth full-length album, and first with backing band The Ramshackle Parade. This rollicking folk-rock interpretation of Dylan’s classics and hidden gems transcends the concept of a simple tribute album. The result is a fun folk-rock album with psychedelic undertones, with folkie ballads, a conversation between rockabilly and swing, and engaging new interpretations of the Master’s works.

🎶Just Like a Woman will be an evening of professionals performing live together – – true to the recording style of Dylan’s earlier work. Members imagined working in the style of Dylan in Woodstock, the days of the Basement Tapes.🎶

SPECIAL GUESTS include – Brent Mason, Grant Heckman, and Adam Kierstead

Jessica Rhaye is an award-winning singer/songwriter/graphic artist and local artist with a career spanning 20 years, and a list of accolades including a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, multiple East Coast Music Award nominations, and Music New Brunswick awards. Jessica has graced many prestigious stages including the National Arts Centre, Stan Rogers Folk Festival, Mariposa Folk Festival, Canadian Music Café, Hotel Café, Half Moon Putney and many more.
