Photos: Local musicians at Bob Dylan’s AmericanaramA

There were no photo passes or professional cameras permitted at last night’s AmericanaramA show with Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Wilco, and Richard Thompson, so some of us had to get creative while documenting the evening visually. For MPR photographer Nate Ryan, that meant working the field with his iPhone. He managed to capture some wonderful and representative shots of the atmosphere of Midway Stadium, including portraits of many of the local musicians who were in attendance.

For more of Nate’s Instagram handiwork (including up-to-the-minute posts from in-studios at the Current, like yesterday’s Grant Hart session and Dawes interview), be sure to follow him here.
