Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac Celebrate the Music of 'Inside Llewyn Davis'
"The Great Folk Scare" is how the late singer-songwriter Dave Van Ronk jokingly referred to the 1960s American folk music revival. But there was nothing to fear Sept. 29 at Manhattan's Town Hall, where a who's-who of folkies past and present gathered to celebrate the sounds of the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis." Entitled "Another Day, Another Time" (after a lyric from Bob Dylan's "Farewell"), the all-acoustic three-hour concert was organized by the Coens and their longtime music supervisor, Grammy-winner T Bone Burnett, as a benefit for the nonprofit National Recording Preservation Foundation, which preserves and archives historically significant audio recordings from America's past.
