Ubana Jones plays
Dylan's early works
Dylan tribute: Paul Ubana
Jones sings Dylan.
Veteran guitarist and
vocalist Paul Ubana
Jones was just 13 when
he saw Bob Dylan per-
form with his band, The
Hawks, at the Royal
Albert Hall in 1965.
It was Dylan s first
European tour and while
he stuck to what the fans
expected during his first
set -- playing solo -- in the
second he came out with
his band and the first 15
rows got up and walked
out in disgust.
My brothers and I left
our cheap seats and
rushed to the front for
the experience of a life-
time, Ubana Jones says.
I d only received my
first guitar two years
before and the experi-
ence changed my life.
This was what I wanted
to do with my life and
thanks to Bob Dylan I
then pursued the rigor-
ous road of music.
Years later he has
been fortunate to share
the stage with the man
himself, both in New
Zealand and more
recently in Vietnam.
Paul Ubana Jones
Sings Dylan is a show
that focuses on Dylan s
first five albums.
While he stays true to
the lyrics, Ubana Jones
says he has taken his
songs into a new and
more intimate harmonic
landscape. They include
classics such as My Back
Pages, Chimes of Free-
dom and The Lonesome
Death of Hattie Carroll.
After graduating from
a London music college
where he studied guitar,
cello and composition,
Ubana Jones moved to
New Zealand in 1987.
Paul Ubana Jones
Sings Dylan tomorrow at
Reva s on the Waterfront
from 8pm. Tickets $30.
Floral artists wanted at museum
Calling all floral artists. The
Whangarei Art Museum needs
The museum has plans to cre-
ate five living floral commemor-
ative carpets early in the new
year as part of WW100 national
It had hoped the Whangarei
Floral Art Club would help cre-
ate the arrangements but the
club is busy with commitments
to other events in February.
Museum director Scott
Pothan says the museum needs
some floral arts enthusiasts to
work with his team to create
the Remembrance Floral Car-
pets on the Canopy Bridge in
This is the first official
national commemoration which
will receive wide national
media coverage as well as offic-
ial government support.
So we need to make it spec-
tacular. Some dedicated
volunteers to work with our
professional florist team at
Blooms would be great.
A grant of $12,000 toward the
creation of the outdoor tribute
was approved by The Lottery
World War One Com-
memorations Environment &
Heritage Board early last year.
The museum is planning
special explorative exhibition
programmes during the World
War I centenary 2014-18
Call 430 4240 if you can help.
