Search: Paul Clayton

Written and Directed by Larry Mollin
A Wiki Folk Musical that celebrates the true story in words and song of one of Bob Dylan’s first musical mentors. Paul Clayton of New Bedford, was the most recorded, young, folk singer in America when Bobby Zimmerman arrived in 1961 Greenwich Village to begin his career as Bob Dylan. It was Paul who helped open the doors to the folk world to him. From 1961-1965 Paul taught Bob the tricks of the trade while falling helplessly in love with him.
