It's the band that Bob deserves...


Meet The Dylan Project

Take four of Britain's most talented folk-rock musicians and a unique singer, add the repertoire of a genius, and you've got the recipe for a dream band.

The musicians in question are PJ Wright (slide and electric guitars, pedal steel) Gerry Conway (drums and percussion) Phil Bond (keys) Dave Pegg (bass) and the singer is Steve Gibbons. As The Dylan Project, they present an exhilarating tribute to the work of arguably the greatest postwar songwriter in the English language.

"Saw you for the first time in South Petherton tonight. What a night. YOU BLEW US AWAY. did not expect that! Best night ever. Thank you xxxxxx"

"First time I have come across you guys and very much enjoyed the concert. Will look out for you again when local to Wiltshire. Having seen Dylan four times, one for each decade from the 70's it was a pleasure to hear his songs presented with such quality." - Andy Slade

"You were all brilliant the other night at the Junction in Cambridge and what you brought to Bob Dylan's work last week was the best. His songs have always benefitted from good re-workings and you did them proud. Especially brilliant versions of Not Dark Yet and Man in the Long Black Coat and Ballad of a Thin Man." - Brin Hughes

"Saw the band last night. Loved it. You were on top form. As I said to Dave Pegg, you are the only band in the world who could play "Sweetheart Like You" at that speed without me reaching for a sub-machine gun. You get away with it, somehow. And the rest was just brilliant." - Neil Roberts

The Tracey Bullard Signature Bass
In 2012, David Carroll of Ozark Instruments and Peggy had plans to make a Dave Pegg Signature acoustic bass.

Peggy has played this “One-off” instrument at Cropredy on occasion but is now selling it on Ebay to raise money for the Katharine House Hospice.

Our dear friend, Tracey Bullard, spent her last days at KHH in the summer receiving loving care from their amazing staff. Peggy has renamed the bass in memory of Tracey.

Stephanie Pegg has kindly agreed to handle the sale and it will start on 10 March for a 10 day period.

Apart from the fact that it is the only one ever made, it's uniqueness is added to by the many signatures Peggy collected at last years Cropredy Festival - Robert Plant, Danny Thompson, Ralph McTell, Steve Hackett, The Fairports, Steve Ashley and Matt Pegg to name but a few.

The bass has now ben sold on eBay for £2,300.00. That's a fantastic price and Peggy would like to thank everyone who took part!
