Every year the Grammy Organization holds a gala to benefit The MusiCares Foundation which provides aid to music people who need financial, medical or personal help. And every year they pick an amazing artist to honor (which effectively guarantees a sell out.) Ten-time GRAMMY winner Bob Dylan will be honored this year, as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday, Feb. 6, 2015, just two days prior to the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
The performers list reads like a Hall of Fame:
Beck; the Black Keys; Crosby, Stills & Nash; John Doe; Norah Jones;
Tom Jones; Los Lobos; John Mellencamp; Willie Nelson; Bonnie Raitt; Eddie Vedder; Jack White; and Neil Young with other names to be added.
Don Was, who has a few Grammys of his own, will be the evening’s musical director. Imagine the jam session!
