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.

The Coen brothers and Burnett memorably partnered for the Grammy-winning soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" A live tour followed that 2000 film.
