Ben Folds, Joe Jackson, Suzanne Vega, Lori Anderson, Neil Sedaka and former Destiny's Child vocalist Michelle Williams have signed on for a Feb. 1 concert in tribute to legendary singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell.

The event will be held at New York's Carnegie Hall. Proceeds will benefit Music for Youth, which fosters innovative music education programs and scholarships for young people. The show will be produced by Knitting Factory/Music for Youth board member Michael Dorf.

Dorf says additional artists will be added to the bill. While the semi-retired Mitchell is at present not listed as a participant, Dorf is promising "a few surprise guests" will turn up.

Tickets are available from the Carnegie Hall box office. VIP packages, which include a pre-show reception with the artists, can be purchased through the Music For Youth Foundation office by calling 646-723-2713.
