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.

We saw another example of this cross-pollination last weekend, from Sleeping Bee  at the semi-annual Folk Project Acoustic Getaway.

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.
