Emmylou Harris will be the subject of a all-star tribute concert in January that will feature performances by Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples, Kris Kristofferson, Martina McBride, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Iron & Wine and others.
The Life and Songs of Emmylou Harris: An All-Star Concert Celebration will take place on Jan. 10 at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington D.C.
Don Was and Buddy Miller will serve as co-musical directors of the event, which will be filmed and recorded for future release. Was has served as musical director for similar tribute concerts to Levon Helm and Gregg Allman (both of those events were produced by Keith Wortman, who is producing this one as well).
