Accepting Artist Submissions to Perform at the 26th Annual Jeff Buckley Tribute at Uncommon Ground!

by August 7, 2023

2023 marks the 26th anniversary of the passing of our beloved Jeff Buckley. It also is the 26th anniversary of the internationally acclaimed Jeff Buckley Tribute at Uncommon Ground in Chicago!

Since their first tribute in 1997, 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 a celebration of Jeff’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 November 16th and 17th. 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 your info and a link to video of yourself covering your favorite Jeff Buckley song here.

We look forward to your submission!
