Johnny Brenda's and Alabaster Museum present a special concert in tribute to the late guitarist Robbie Basho. The event is also a benefit to raise funds to complete the first ever documentary film about Basho - titled Voice Of The Eagle: The Enigma Of Robbie Basho - currently in the works by London-based filmmaker Liam Barker.

The lineup includes performances by Virginia based guitarist Daniel Bachman, Glenn Jones, Maine based folk duo Arborea, and Chicago based guitarist/singer-songwriter Ryley Walker. ….performers whose work has been inspired by Robbie Basho's music.  A preview of the film in production will be featured during the evening, and a drawing to win a vinyl copy of the Robbie Basho tribute record 'We Are All One, In The Sun'...produced by Arborea for Important Records in 2010.  The album made Acoustic Guitar Magazine's Best Albums of 2010, 'Editors Top Pick' Guitar Player Magazine, Pitchfork 7.9, etc.  The 180 gram vinyl edition of the Basho tribute was released on the UK label alt.vinyl in a limited 300 copy edition and is now Sold Out (I've got one, do you? :)).

In addition to raising money through ticket sales, we are also shooting the concert and making a digital download of the concert film available to those who donate on this website.  

The concert video will feature performances by all the musicians on stage that evening: Daniel Bachman, Glenn Jones, Arborea, and Ryley Walker.  It will be professionally shot in HD on 4 cameras and directed by Jesse Sheppard, whose credits include "The Things That We Used To Do" the 2010 performance DVD featuring Glenn Jones and Jack Rose.
