For more than three decades, musicians from all genres—including David Bowie, R.E.M., Emmylou Harris and Paul Simon—have come together for a concert to benefit the Tibet House US, a non-profit educational institution and cultural embassy founded in 1987 at the request of the Dalai Lama to ensure the survival of the Tibetan civilization.
This year’s eclectic lineup at the 32nd annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert will feature a handful of country-centric performers—Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price—as well as Stephen Colbert, Nathaniel Rateliff, Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Jon Batiste, Bernard Sumner, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Tenzin Choegyal.
Jason Isbell noted via Twitter that he will be “performing an experimental guitar set” to continue to challenge himself.
The 32nd annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert will be held on Feb. 7 at New York City’s Carnegie Hall. Tickets for the concert are on sale now, ranging from $35 to $200.
I’ll be joining many great artists at 2019’s @tibethouseus benefit @carnegiehall. It’s on 2/7, coincidentally my 7-year sober date. In order to continue to challenge myself, I’ll be performing an experimental guitar set, not my usual songs. Tickets: https://t.co/nkTZcj7ia5
