Girl From The North Country Original London Cast Recording

Brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians, Girl From The North Country sees award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weave the iconic songbook of Dylan into the new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.

The show features songs from every period of Bob Dylan’s catalogue, with new musical arrangements by Simon Hale, including hits Tight Connection To My Heart, Like A Rolling Stone/To Make You Feel My Love, and the titular song Girl From The North Country.

Playwright and director Conor McPherson said of the announcement: “I’m so delighted the brilliant talent of our cast will be captured at Abbey Road Studios."

"It’s been an honour working with them on Bob Dylan's incredible songs. The reaction from audiences every night and the clamour for a recording has been overwhelming and is a true testament to their stunning voices.”

Girl From The North Country is aptly set in Dylan’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934. A community living on a knife-edge huddle together in the local guesthouse - and when two unexpected figures show up in the middle of the night, things start to spiral beyond the point of no return.

Official London Theatre described the production as "an enthralling piece of storytelling, propelled by a thrillingly talented cast."

The critically celebrated show's run comes to a close on 7 October.
