In 2000, filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen teamed up with producer T Bone Burnett to create an award-winning soundtrack for their hit film O Brother, Where Art Thou? The 1930s-set movie featured a mix of traditional Americana, country, folk, and blues, including such songs as “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow,” “O Death,” and “Lonesome Valley” performed by such musicians as Norman Blake, Jerry Douglas, Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, and the Soggy Bottom Boys. In their latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, which premiered at Cannes in May, the Coens tell the story of a week in the life of a 1960s Greenwich Village folksinger, with Burnett once again on board to steer the soundtrack. On September 29, the music of the film will take center stage at the Town Hall, when “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis” takes place, featuring an all-star lineup raising funds for the National Recording Preservation Foundation. The roster is unusually impressive, featuring the Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens, Lake Street Drive, Colin Meloy, the Milk Carton Kids, Marcus Mumford, Conor Oberst, the Punch Brothers, Secret Sisters, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Willie Watson, and Jack White in addition to cast members Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, and Stark Sands. The concert will include songs from the film in addition to 1960s tunes that inspired them. The film will screen at this fall’s New York Film Festival before opening in December. Tickets are $75 and $150 and go on sale August 21 at noon.
