Beck Going Country For One Show Only

By |

Beck fans, start practicing your twangs! The alt-folk artist has announced a country-blues concert on Nov. 19 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.

The one-off show, titled Beck Acoustic With Friends, was inspired by Beck's performance with Willie Nelson at Farm Aid earlier this year, according to Dennis Dennehy, Beck's publicist at Geffen Records. Beck and Nelson performed, "Peach Pickin' Time in Georgia," a Jimmie Rogers song. For the one-time show in L.A., Beck's set list will be culled from his own material as well as some Rogers-inspired tunes.

Joining Beck on stage will be 19-year-old fiddler Gabe Witcher, Jay Dee Maness on pedal steel and Little Feat keyboardist Billy Payne.
