With Inside Llewyn Davis, writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen take on the 1960s Greenwich Village folk music scene. The film is sure to be supremely entertaining, but if the Coen brothers’ O, Brother Where Art Thou? is any indication, we’re also in for one hell of a soundtrack. In anticipation of the film’s release, the Coen brothers, executive music producer T Bone Burnett, and producer Scott Rudin have put together a benefit concert called “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis.” The concert will take place on September 29th at The Town Hall in New York City, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, August 21st at Ticketmaster.com.
Taking part in the concert will be an impressive lineup of artists including The Avett Brothers, Marcus Mumford, Conor Oberst, Patti Smith, Jack White, Colin Meloy, Milk Carton Kids, and many more. Additionally, Inside Llewyn Davis stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, and Stark Sands will perform. Hit the jump for more details. Inside Llewyn Davis opens in theaters on December 6th.

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, written and directed by Academy Award® winners Joel and Ethan Coen and based on their original screenplay, was produced by Scott Rudin and Joel and Ethan Coen. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS recently won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival, and will also screen at this year’s New York Film Festival. The film, which will be distributed by CBS Films in the U.S., begins its theatrical run on December 6.
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club — on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul — and back again.
Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS — in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou? — is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with multiple-Grammy and Academy Award®-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. Marcus Mumford is associate music producer.
Nonesuch Records releases the soundtrack to INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. Produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen, and Ethan Coen, with Marcus Mumford as its associate producer, the album features 12 new recordings created especially for the film and soundtrack. Also included is a never-before-released recording of Bob Dylan performing his song “Farewell,” which was originally recorded during the sessions for his album The Times They Are A-Changin’,and is available exclusively on this soundtrack.
