In fall 1975 and spring 1976 Bob Dylan led a travelling retinue of musicians around America on the two legs of the Rolling Thunder tour. Along for the ride were Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, David Blue, Kinky Friedman, T-Bone Burnett, Allen Ginsberg, Sam Sheppard, Mick Ronson and dozens more musicians, friends, family and hangers-on. The circus was documented in the film Renaldo and Clara, the live album Hard Rain and a TV concert special of the same name, while in between the two legs of the tour Dylan released the classic Desire album. It is this period of heightened creativity and personal drama that Dylan authority, author and musician Sid Griffin, examines in Shelter From The Storm.

Interviewing many of the tour's participants, including musicians Roger McGuinn, T-Bone Burnette, Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and tour manager Louie Kemp, Griffin mixes meticulous musical analysis with gripping narrative in this definitive account the Rolling Thunder years.

Author, musician and broadcaster Sid Griffin first came to public attention leading Americana pioneers The Long Ryders in the 1980s, and currently fronts alt-country heroes The Coal Porters. He is also a solo performer, a freelance writer, a DJ, and a record producer. An acknowledged expert on the musical career of Gram Parsons, Griffin wrote Gram Parsons - A Music Biography (Sierra 1985) and Fallen Angel, the 2004 BBC TV documentary about Parsons. In 2007 Jawbone Press published Griffin's acclaimed and best-selling Million Dollar Bash: Bob Dylan, The Band And The Basement Tapes. Griffin was raised in Kentucky and currently lives in north London.
