A gala concert in February will honor Bob Dylan with an impressive lineup.
Some of the artists that are set to play are: Jack White, Neil Young, Beck, The Black Keys, Norah Jones, Willie Nelson, Eddie Vedder, Tom Jones, John Mellencamp, Bonnie Raitt and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
The concert commemorates The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ choosing Dylan as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year. The concert will be held on February 6 and will be part of Grammy Week.
Neil Portnow, CEO of the MusiCares Foundation and The Recording Academy, said in a recent statement, “In celebrating the 25th anniversary of our MusiCares Person of the Year tribute, it is most fitting that we are honouring Bob Dylan, whose body of creative work has contributed to America’s culture, as well as that of the entire world, in genuinely deep and lasting ways.”
Money going to the concert will be donated to MusiCares, which is a foundation that provides help to musicians in need. The Person of the Year award honors musicians for both their artistic achievements, and their philanthropy. Recipients include Brian Wilson, James Taylor and Bruce Springsteen.
