Hutton Brickyard isn’t just about Smorgasburg anymore! On June 24th, one of the biggest acts in the entertainment business is coming to Kingston. NY’s Hutton Brickyards to put the last functioning brickyard in the Hudson Valley on the map as a major event venue in its latest incarnation. Bob Dylan, one of the most recognizable figures from the revolutionary musical scene of the 60’s still draws huge crowds wherever he plays and the Brickyard venue will easily sell out it’s 3,500 capacity.
After five and a half decades, the 75 yr old performer will have just returned the the U.S. after a 20-performance European Tour to play here in Kingston, NY. Recording much of his early work in nearby Woodstock along with many other the 60’s artistic pioneers, this is sort of a return to Dylan’s roots and to a smaller, more intimate venue than he would normally appear at.
Who would have ever thought that the last distinguishable site of the extinct brickmaking industry in the Hudson Valley could get such a ‘shot in the arm’ from an artist whose genesis virtually began in nearby Woodstock?
Due to the tremendous demand for ticket, a second show was added prior to the original show. On June 23, Dylan will be performing at Hutton Brickyards and here is some more detail on both shows:
