Showtime To Broadcast Inside Llewyn Davis Concert, Listen To A Song From The Soundtrack Now

Inside-Llewyn-DavisThere’s a lot to love about Inside Llewyn Davis and one of the many things that help make it such a special film is the superb soundtrack, featuring fine performances from many of the actors.

One of the most memorable songs in the film is Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song), a variation on a folk classic which was first recorded by musicologist John Lomax – father of Alan Lomax – over one hundred years ago.

The recording was of an African American woman singing the song but unfortunately the recording broke and her performance was lost. The song was still in the memories of those that had heard it though and it has since been recorded by a number of artists, including a very memorable version by Dave Van Ronk.

The new version of the song featured in Inside Llewyn Davis is sung by the film’s star Oscar Issac and Marcus Mumford, of Mumford & Sons fame. You can listen to the track in full below, thanks to The Playlist for the embed, and as you will hear it’s a beautiful version and perhaps most in keeping with Van Ronk’s recording of the song.

A one-night only benefit concert, Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis, is set to take place next week and it was announced today that Showtime will broadcast the concert on the 13th of December.

In addition to stars from the film –  Oscar Isaac , Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver, Stark Sands and John Goodman – the concert will also feature the following artists,

The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lake Street Dive, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, The Milk Carton Kids, Keb’ Mo’, Marcus Mumford, Bob Neuwirth, Conor Oberst, Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, The Secret Sisters, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, and Jack White.

Inside Llewyn Davis is out in America on the 20th of December – a week after the concert – and in the UK on the 24th of January. Before that it will be playing at the London Film Festival in a couple of weeks. I aim to see it for a second time there. And maybe a third too. It’s really very good.
