Delighted to announce that there is finally a Dylan Room at The Troubadour Club in London, a place to recognise a part of London musical history and a venue that formed an important chapter in early Dylan development. In July, the week that Dylan is in London, we will host a talk from Michael Gray and a set from The Dylan Band(a tribute band based in the UK). Details can be found on The Troubadour website. If in London...pop in!

Nice to see. And you are correct - the Bob Dylan early days in England were very important. And I would point out that some of the most literate, devoted Dylan fans reside in the British Isles. Their constant contributions here are nothing short of stunning. I started a thread here a few years ago regarding the case that European Dylan fans may appreciate Dylan more than American fans -

Launching very soon at The Dylan Room at The Troubadour will be Friday Dylan lunches. An opportunity to visit living music history(The Troubadour has barely changed since 1954 and Dylan would recognise where he played in 62!)and to learn the fascinating stories. If interested the Dylan In London group can be contacted at elmowood@hotmail.com

Absolutely magical evening with Michael Gray at The Troubadour. So wonderful to once again have the old place resonating to the sound of Dylan!

A really enjoyable evening - wonderful to imagine Dylan among those very walls, and listen to clips of concerts from Earls Court, which is only a short walk away. It was real treat to close my eyes and imagine being in the Festival Hall in May 1964 for that first performance of Chimes Of Freedom. A great night for any London-based Dylan fan.

So pleased that you enjoyed the evening. It is the first of many Dylan events that we intend to host as part of Dylan In London and a fabulous way to launch the new Dylan Room!

Needless to say the Troubadour name is an exclusive gene pool. The LA club has so many historic firsts and great shows, it probably has no equal. The list, of course, includes British saint Sir Elton John. Here's an amazing chronological list from that place -

Wonderful music history and opened in 1957 after the owner was inspired by a trip to the original Troubadour in London. The LA version is rightly lauded and we are delighted, with the opening of The Dylan Room,that the original is being recognised for it's place in music history

The Dylan Room at The Troubadour is unable to comment on rumours elsewhere on this site regarding a new Dylan collaboration. All we can say is that if Dylan did hold a Whiskey based event with the Royal Family, as the leading Dylan location in Europe....it would be at The Dylan Room at The Troubadour!

Harry, William or Charles would be up for that I reckon

One of my sources tells me there is another small issue regarding the Royals William and Kate. I guess Bob was a little miffed when William and Kate requested "Feel My Love", for their first dance, they requested the Adele "cover" of his song. Jesus Bob, they were being diplomatic - Adele IS English!

But let's face it, Bob Dylan is about as close to American Royalty as you get. The Prince of Darkness and the Prince of light all rolled into one. Actually, isn't he a King? Regardless, it would be a match made in heaven.

Of course, Adele also played at The Troubadour and has been known to pop in!. If Elvis is The King, then what is Dylan??!!

I did not make it to the event last Thursday but we did stop by the Troubadour on Sunday and were able to look at the Dylan room briefly (it was reserved that night) and really enjoyed it. I wish we could have drank in there, but hopefully next time we go to London we can do just that. It’s a really nice set up though. Cheers to those involved in setting it up.

So glad you enjoyed it! Only just opened but already proving very popular. Any visitors interested in a Dylan talk and a tour around can email me and the Dylan In London group at elmowood@hotmail.com. Cheers!
