NEW YORK - The Coen brothers and T Bone Burnett will celebrate the folk music of their 1960s Greenwich Village comic drama "Inside Llewyn Davis" with a concert in New York.
The filmmakers announced Monday that they will host a concert Sept. 29 at New York's Town Hall. Performing will be Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Patti Smith, Jack White, Colin Meloy and others.
Several of the film's stars will also perform, including Oscar Isaac, who plays a folk singer struggling to make it in pre-Bob Dylan New York. The film, with music supervised by Burnett, opens Dec. 6 and features several authentic performances of lesser known songs from the late '50s and early '60s folk revival.
A portion of the concert proceeds will benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation, which seeks to archive and preserve America's musical heritage.
Man found dead at singer's home
JUPITER, Fla. - Authorities say a man has been found dead from a gunshot wound inside a South Florida home owned by singer Olivia Newton-John and her husband.
Jupiter police Sgt. Scott Pascarella said Monday that the unidentified victim wasn't a resident or relative of the residents. He said the victim had permission to be at the home but hadn't been staying there.
Initial media reports listed the death as a suicide, but Pascarella said the case is classified as a death investigation. He didn't say whether foul play was involved.
The Palm Beach Post reports construction was being done on the home.
No other details were released. Calls to the singer's agent and manager weren't immediately returned.
The singer's hits include "You're The One That I Want," a duet with John Travolta from the 1978 movie "Grease."
