According to Bardavon Executive Director Chris Silva, Dylan "took at least one stroll around the city" this week. The sessions lasted about three hours each day. Among the songs rehearsed were "Tangled Up in Blue," "Blind Willie McTell," "Ballad of Hollis Brown," "Things Have Changed," and "Nettie Moore."

Silva, who attended each rehearsal and is a passionate Dylan fan, said that in addition to performing well-known songs, Dylan, "did play around with some stuff that, I don't know what he was doing. He was playing around with other tunes, variations and stuff."

Bob Dylan on Wednesday wrapped up three days of private rehearsals at the Bardavon 1869 Opera House in Poughkeepsie — the fourth time since early 2006 that he held closed-door sessions at the historic theater on Market Street.

Dylan and his band left Poughkeepsie Wednesday night, after rehearsing on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, said Bardavon Executive Director Chris Silva. Dylan, while he was in Poughkeepsie this week, took at least one stroll around the city, Silva said.

Dylan, 71, a former Woodstock resident who last month was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama, rehearsed with his band for about three hours each day, performing songs from his legendary catalog, including "Tangled Up in Blue," "Blind Willie McTell" and "Ballad of Hollis Brown." Dylan also played, "Things Have Changed," for which he won a 2000 Academy Award; and "Nettie Moore," from his 2006 album, "Modern Times."

Dylan during his first rehearsal session at the Bardavon, in late winter of 2006, worked on the songs for "Modern Times" and from Poughkeepsie entered a New York City recording studio. Dylan and his band returned later that year prior to a European tour, then again in 2007 before a U.S. tour. Dylan and his band on Saturday will launch a European tour at the Hop Farm Music Festival in Tonbridge, Kent, England.

"It never gets old," Silva said. "It's always great." Silva said he did not know if Dylan lodged in Poughkeepsie during the rehearsals.

Dylan lived in Woodstock during the late 1960s and early 1970s, residing at one time on the second floor of the old Espresso Cafe on Tinker Street, a building that now houses the Center for Photography at Woodstock.

"Bob Dylan is the uncontested poet laureate of the rock and roll era and the pre-eminent singer/songwriter of modern times," according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, into which he was inducted in 1988. "Whether singing a topical folk song, exploring rootsy rock and blues, or delivering one of his more abstract, allegorical compositions, Dylan has consistently demonstrated the rare ability to reach and affect listeners with thoughtful, sophisticated lyrics...With his songs, Dylan has provided a running commentary on our restless age. His biting, imagistic and often cryptic lyrics served to capture and define the mood of a generation.
For this, he’s been elevated to the role of spokesmen – and yet the elusive Dylan won’t even admit to being a poet."

The stage upon which Dylan rehearsed this week sits inside New York State's oldest theater. Performers who entertained audiences from that stage over more than a century include Mark Twain, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Harry Houdini and George M. Cohan.

Silva, who attended each rehearsal and is a passionate Dylan fan, said that in addition to performing well-known songs, Dylan, "did play around with some stuff that, I don't know what he was doing. He was playing around with other tunes, variations and stuff."

Silva said the atmosphere during the rehearsals was "relaxed and very cordial." But in describing Dylan, Silva said, "He's all business."

Dylan was joined during the rehearsals by bass player Tony Garnier, drummer George Receli, Don Herron on steel guitar and fiddle and guitarists Stu Kimball and Charlie Sexton.
