Every year Uncommon Ground in Chicago hosts a concert tribute to the late and very talented musician Jeff Buckley. Buckley passed away in 1997 from a drowning accident in Memphis. In his short career, he released ‘Grace,’ and right before his untimely death he was actually starting with his second album.
20 years ago Buckley played what many considered to be one of his best performances at Uncommon Ground. Each year since his passing they have put on a tribute concert, and invite musicians from all over the world to contribute to a great night of music and remembrance. This year it will be held November 17th and 18th in Chicago. For more information and how to get involved head over here: Jeff Buckley Tribute.
