Art Garfunkel Joins Tribute To The Music Of The Rolling Stones

Legendary singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Art Garfunkel has been added to the all-star line-up paying tribute to the music of Rolling Stones at Carnegie Hall Tuesday, March 13. The already announced stellar bill of 21 artists playing songs from the iconic Stones collection 'Hot Rocks 1964-1971' includes Marianne Faithfull, Ronnie Spector, The Mountain Goats, Rosanne Cash, TV on the Radio & Jovanotti, Glen Hansard, Peaches, Marc Cohn, Taj Mahal, Steve Earle, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jackie Greene and Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes).

The concert marks the eighth installment in an annual series to raise crucially needed funds for music education programs for underprivileged youth. Total funds raised exceed $600, 000 to date. 100% of the net proceeds from the concert will be given to eight music education non-profits: The American Symphony Orchestra Music Notes, Church Street School of Music, Young Audiences, Music Unites, FIKS (Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools); and newly added beneficiaries The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, Midori and Friends, and The Center for Arts Education.
