On April 12th, 1963 Bob Dylan performed his first major solo at The Town Hall in New York City. While Dylan had been performing prior to this date, it wasn’t until the release of his second album in 1963 that he began to create a popular name for himself as a singer and a songwriter. His most famous song at this time, “Blowin’ in the Wind”, partially derived its melody from the traditional slave song “No More Auction Block”, while its lyrics questioned the social and political status quo. Many of Bob Dylan’s songs became associated with anti-war movements and US civil rights.
