Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power + More to Cover Folk Classics for Tribute Concert, Covers Album
Next month, Beck, Fiona Apple, Jakob Dylan, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and former Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros singer Jade Castrinos will take part in a tribute concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of Southern California folk-rock. The KCRW-hosted event, dubbed Echo in the Canyon, will be accompanied by a covers album of the same name at a later date.
The Echo in the Canyon concert will take place at the Orpheum Theatre in L.A. on Oct. 12. The featured artists will deliver their takes on the music of the Byrds, the Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, the Mamas and the Papas and more. Tickets go on sale this Friday (Oct. 2) at 10AM PDT over at Ticketmaster.
The album, which will consist of covers by all of the musicians set to play the Orpheum in October, will follow sometime in 2016. Ahead of that yet-to-be-determined date, you can listen to Dylan and Cat Power's collaboration on the Turtles’ “You Showed Me.” And if you would like to hear the original (written by the Byrds’ Gene Clark and Jim McGuinn), that can also be found below.
