Lettre à Françoise.
In 1960, Bob Dylan first saw Françoise Hardy perform on TV. This was the moment that Dylan was charmed by the French singer. Dylan was located in New York’s Greenwich Village, where he spent time in a local cafe writing letters. Some of which were written to Françoise Hardy. These letters were found by two friends of the cafe owner and have now shown Dylan and Hardy their findings. The letters touched Hardy deeply and Dylan expressed sadness that the relationship never would have flourished due to distance. Dylan also mentioned that he didn’t need to be close to Françoise Hardy to feel like he knew her. The pair had only met once during their careers during a Bob Dylan concert in Olympia in 1966.
