50 years ago to the day, on September 27, 1962, the New York Times ran a story entitled "Bob Dylan: A Distinctive Folk Song Stylist" after his first Carnegie Hall concert. So most of the evening will feature Dylan songs performed by him, but also a by a number of other artists.One of those songs -- "When the Ship Comes In" -- will help host Nick Noble segue briefly into a handful of sea songs, as the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival (where WICN has been a presence for three years now) runs 9/28-9/30.
