Last year marked the beginning of a new and exciting tradition, as all-star tribute concerts popped up across the country for a number of beloved artists. Put on by the group Blackbird Presents, tributes to Jerry Garcia, Dr. John and Emmylou Harris captured the imaginations of musicians everywhere, and entranced fans with creative interpretations of legendary songs.Today we’ve learned that all three of those tributes will be released on CD and DVD, though the dates of these releases have yet to be revealed. The Dear Jerry tribute was easily one of the most exciting evenings of music, with all four surviving members of the Grateful Dead on hand, as well as performances from Widespread Panic, moe., Bruce Hornsby, Grace Potter, Jimmy Cliff, David Grisman, Jorma Kaukonen, Railroad Earth, The Disco Biscuits and more.
