Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck will host “George Harrison: A Tribute,” a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, on Feb. 22. Banjo master Tony Trischka, singer-songwriter Carsie Blanton and the bluegrass group Cole Quest & the City Pickers will co-headline, with support by Eleanor Buckland, Sean Trischka, Ray Belli, Loren Daniels, Valerie Johnson, David Wofford and others.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 3; visit debonairmusichall.com.
The concert is part of a series that, previously, has included tributes to artists such as the late Gregg Allman, the late David Bowie and the late Prince.
It is being presented in conjunction with the Relay for Life ACS fundraiser taking place in Glen Rock and Fair Lawn, June 3-4. For information on that, visit relayforlife.org/grflnj.
“Over twenty years have passed since George Harrison lost his cancer battle, and the concert will be a retrospective of his musical life,” said the concert’s producer, Assunta Trischka, in a press release (she is Tony Trischka’s wife and a longtime Relay for Life volunteer). “Attendees will enjoy iconic Beatles songs, solo material, and more.”
