Isolde Kopping, Lennox Head
A note to Ballina Shire Council. It’s been 20 years since the legendary Bob Dylan performed in Ballina on 31 March 2001. That day we heard one of the greatest singers, songwriters, and activists of our times – not to mention Nobel Literature Prize Laureate – perform for an appreciative crowd.
He performed in a way that is typical for Australia, ie low key, relaxed, outdoors, not too expensive, fun. I have always wondered why the sports oval where he performed has not been renamed in his honour, or at least graced with a plaque or a small statue (only half joking), anything really to acknowledge the occasion. Please consider.
