Girl From the North Country

Girl From The North Country, written and directed by Conor McPherson with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan, is visiting The Lowry in Salford next month as part of its first UK tour.

It’s a universal story about family and love which reimagines Dylan’s songs and runs from September 20–24.

The Broadway cast recording was nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award and in June the show won Best Orchestrations at the 75th Tony Awards.

It’s 1934 in the heartland of America and a group of wayward souls cross paths in a time-weathered guesthouse. They find themselves facing unspoken truths about the present.

Girl From The North Country first opened at The Old Vic in July 2017 playing to sold out audiences.
