Josh Ritter, Joe Henry, Antibalas Join Lineup for Paul Simon Tribute Show
Josh Ritter and Joe Henry have been added to the lineup for The Music of Paul Simon at Carnegie Hall, a tribute show being put on by Michael Dorf. In addition, Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas have also signed on as the night’s house band. The event, which is set to take place New York City’s Carnegie Hall on March 31, will raise money for youth-centered music education programs in NYC.
The Music of Paul Simon will be the 10th annual concert in Dorf’s Carnegie Hall tribute series. Past honorees include Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Prince.
Tickets for the show are now on sale.
As previously reported, Bob Weir has confirmed that he is teaming up with Ritter and The Yellowbirds’ Josh Kaufman to write an album. The legendary guitarist told Rolling Stone that the trio are “going towards a real cowboy aesthetic and we’re going to see where that takes us.”
