The 18th annual Jeff Buckley tribute concert was held November 16 and 17 at Uncommon Ground’s Clark and Grace location. Every year, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Oldtown School of Folk Music Scholarship Fund.
Our thanks to Leslie Spencer for sending us a rundown on the event.
“There were 8 performers this year, each performing one Jeff Buckley original and one cover song. Every year there is a mixture of artists returning to play the tribute, as well as a few newbies. Each performer brought their own personal spin on the songs, and a good time was had by all.”
Nino Arobelidze and her husband Pablo performed “The Way Young Lovers Do” and “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over.” Nino is originally from the country of Georgia, but living in Chicago and studying vocal performance.
The final performer of the night was JC Brooks, of JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. He sang “Everybody Here Wants You.” And “Hallelujah.”
