Bettye LeVette, jazz star Madeleine Peyroux and alternative rock icon Bob Mould have signed up to lead an eclectic tribute to Paul Simon in New York in March.

The trio will be joined by the Civil Wars’ Joy Williams and composer Allen Toussaint, among others.

The Simon tribute is the 10th installment of a long-running series hosted by philanthropist Michael Dorf.

Last year, Elvis Costello, D’Angelo and Booker T. Jones performed at a Prince tribute, and past events have been dedicated to the music of Bruce Springsteen, R.E.M., the Rolling Stones and Elton John.
