'Inside Llewyn Davis' Concert Set for Showtime Airing, Album Release

Press Release: Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of "Inside Llewyn Davis," a one-night-only concert, was held at New York City’s Town Hall on September 29 to celebrate the music of the Golden Globe–nominated film Inside Llewyn Davis. The evening was filmed for a documentary that will be broadcast by SHOWTIME beginning Friday, December 13, at 10 PM, and Nonesuch Records will release a live album from the concert in late winter/early spring 2014. The album features live performances by the film’s star, Oscar Isaac, as well as The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens, Colin Meloy, The Milk Carton Kids, Marcus Mumford, Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Jack White.

The concert, documentary, and live album were produced by Inside Llewyn Davis writer/director/producers Joel and Ethan Coen and soundtrack producer T Bone Burnett. Huffington Post called the concert “one of those only-in-New-York events,” while Rolling Stone said it was “a bustling salute to the sounds and the idea of Sixties folk music,” and continued, “For all the formality of the night, which was exceedingly well-paced and organized, the concert recalled a time when one or two people, bearing one or two unplugged instruments, could be as enthralling as the greatest rock or EDM track.”
