Call for Artist submissions for the 25th Annual Chicago Tribute Show

by June 28, 2022

2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of our beloved Jeff Buckley. It also is the 25th anniversary of our internationally acclaimed Jeff Buckley Tribute at Uncommon Ground Lakeview!

Ever since the first tribute, Uncommon Ground has been dedicated to continuing to uplift Jeff’s music, as well as champion up-and-coming artists from all over the world, in the spirit of Jeff’s now infamous performance there back in 1994.

The tribute is a fundraiser for the Old Town School of Folk Music Scholarship Fund, and in celebration of Jeff Buckley’s birthday. Every year Uncommon Ground raises around $1500 for the next generation of artists. They will also be providing special commemorative album giveaways for performers and audience members!

Musicians donate their time and talent to perform two songs on Wednesday, November 16th. Past events have featured performers from all over the world, including France, Italy, Denmark, Holland, Mexico, UK, Australia, and Canada.

By being a part of this event, you are supporting the next generation of artists, communing with other musicians, and celebrating the life and birthday of a legendary artist.

To submit to perform, please send music links, social media links and a video of yourself covering your favorite Jeff Buckley song to [email protected]

We look forward to your submission!
