Minnesota-born filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen are celebrating the release of their folk music tale "Inside Llewyn Davis" with a folk music concert, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Coens, along with the film's music supervisor, T Bone Burnett, are hosting the concert -- titled "Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of 'Inside Llewyn Davis" -- Sept. 29 at New York's Town Square. Among the performers are Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Patti Smith and Jack White.

Oscar Isaac, who plays the title character will also perform, along with stars Carey Muligan and John Goodman.

"Inside Llewyn Davis" chronicles the travails of a struggling folk singer in a pre-Bob Dylan folk scene in New York City's Greenwich Village in the early 1960s.

The film -- which took the Grand Prix prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May -- also stars Justin Timberlake, F. Murray Abraham and Roseau, Minn., native Garrett Hedlund.

The soundtrack for "Inside Llewyn Davis" includes a song by Dylan, as well as tracks featuring Isaac, Timberlake, Mulligan and Mumford, who is married to the "Great Gatsby" actress.

"Inside Llweyn Davis" will be released in select theaters Dec. 6 and expand into more venues Dec. 20.
