The Coen brothers and T Bone Burnett will celebrate the folk music of their 1960s Greenwich Village drama "Inside Llewyn Davis" with a concert in New York.
The filmmakers announced Monday that they will host the event Sept. 29. Performing will be Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Patti Smith, Jack White, Colin Meloy and others.
Several of the film's stars will also perform, including Oscar Isaac, who plays a folk singer struggling to make it in pre-Bob Dylan New York. The film, with music supervised by Burnett, features several authentic performances of lesser-known songs from the late 1950s and early `60s folk revival.
The film opens Dec. 6.
The Coen brothers and Burnett memorably partnered for the Grammy-winning soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
