Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will headline a star-studded lineup for Lead Belly At 125: A Tribute To An American Songster, on April 25th at the Kennedy Center.
Lead Belly is one of the mainstays of American folk music. A master storyteller through song, he (Huddie William Ledbetter) blended the sound of traditional folk with blues, work songs, and spirituals to create a body of music that ranks with the catalogues of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, America's other folk music stalwarts.
This special one-night-only concert in collaboration with the Grammy Museum, Lead Belly At 125: A Tribute To An American Songster, celebrates the man and the music featuring many of today's top artists performing Lead Belly classics. The musical evening features Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, and Buddy Miller with Viktor Krauss as headliners, with special appearances by Alvin Youngblood Hart, Billy Hector, Valerie June, Shannon McNally, Josh White Jr., Lucinda Williams, and Dan Zanes, among others.
This performance may be recorded for later broadcast. More details and tickets at this location.
