2006 Tibet House Benefit Concert Info
For some reason, the news of this slipped right past me…
The 2006 Tibet House Benefit Concert is scheduled for March 1, 2006 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Past performers include R.E.M., Nellie McKay, John Cale, Trey Anastasio, and really tons of others.
This will definitely be a classy night in NYC for anyone who’s interested…
To date, confirmed artists include Philip Glass, award-winning composer, well known for his gripping melodies which enchant listeners worldwide; Laurie Anderson, another long-time favorite of the Benefit Concert, who will be gracing the stage with her wildly creative musical talent; Damien Rice, an amazing artist who will be performing for the first time at the event, whose haunting and melodic music can be heard on the soundtrack of the movie Closer, in the title song, “The Blower’s Daughter”; Sufjan Stevens, another newcomer to the show, a talented, intelligent artist whose work brims with heart-wrenching melodies and orchestration; and singer, pianist, songwriter, arranger and producer Allen Toussaint, one of America’s greatest musical treasures and a New Orleans native who has had a tremendous influence on American music reaching deep into the idioms of rhythm and blues, pop, country, musical theater, blues, and jazz.
Update: Antony was added to the lineup, also.
