Joss Stone, the Byrds’ Roger McGuinn, Shawn Colvin and Aimee Mann will be on hand Oct. 10 at New York’s Carnegie Hall for a tribute to Elton John. The event is being produced by Michael Dorf, who in recent years has crafted similar events in honor of Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan.
Also on the bill for the John event are Phish’s Page McConnell, Phoebe Snow, Jill Sobule and Lloyd Cole, Brendan Benson, Ryan Shaw, Joshua Radin, the Pernice Brohters, Raul Malo and Lizz Wright.
Proceeds from the show will benefit Music For Youth Foundation, which provides music education to at-risk youth.
“Elton and Bernie have such a large catalog of hits, and the great number of musicians interested in performing this tribute is staggering,” says Dorf. “By show time, the lineup will include an amazing array of talent, from the very young to old, from an upcoming songwriter to a legend in their own right.”
