Joan Osborne Covers Dylan at the Caribou Room

Wednesday, the deeply respected Joan Osborne – who made it big with “What if God Was One of Us” in 1995 and later attracted the jamband crowd by touring with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead – played an intimate mid-week set at the Caribou Room, flanked by a keyboardist and guitarist.
Osborne is currently writing and recording a new record while promoting her 2017 album of Bob Dylan covers on the road. During her Caribou Room set, Osborne sang strong, sweet and true on heartbreaking Dylan love songs such as “Tangled Up In Blue” and “Buckets of Rain”; her mesmerizing delivery was quite a contrast from what David Bowie famously called Dylan’s “voice like sand and glue” in his immortal “Song for Bob Dylan.”
