Jack White, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch for Coen Brothers concert

Jack White, Patti Smith and Gillian Welch are among the artists playing a benefit concert in New York, produced by the Coen Brothers and T Bone Burnett.

The event - Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating The Music Of Inside Llewyn Davis - will take place at The Town Hall in New York City on Sunday, September 29, 2013.

It is inspired by Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen's upcoming film set in the 1960s Greenwich Village folk music scene.

A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation.

The concert will feature live performances of the film’s music, as well as songs from the early 1960s that inspired the film. Artists performing at the concert include The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lake Street Dive, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Milk Carton Kids, Marcus Mumford, Conor Oberst, Punch Brothers, Secret Sisters, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, Willie Watson, and Jack White.

Stars of the film will also perform at the event, including Oscar Isaac (who plays the title role in the film), Carey Mulligan, John Goodman and Stark Sands.

Tickets to the concert will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 12:00 PM EDT at Ticketmaster.com.

Nonesuch Records releases the soundtrack to Inside Llewyn Davis on Monday, November 11, 2013; the film will open in the UK in January 2013.
