Video: I Pity the Poor Immigrant, performed by Sleeping Bee
One of the things that has made Bob Dylan so special — even, on Thursday, Nobel Prize-worthy– is the way he has inspired so many artists around the world.
Presciently, bass player Lindsey Horner referred to Dylan as The Bard. The Nobel Prize for Literature makes a case for this iconic figure as his generation’s Shakespeare.
Sleeping Bee is an all-star ensemble — like Dylan, defying simple labels — that found some honey in this interpretation of I Pity the Poor Immigrant.
Horner is joined by Timothy Hill on vocals and guitar, Randy Crafton on percussion, and Andy Goessling on woodwind. Morristown Green readers may know Goessling as a Mendham native, and a member of Railroad Earth.
