Album of the Month: Various Artists - George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison

In anticipation of the world's largest Beatles-inspired music festival: Abbey Road On The River 2016(May 26-30), we pay tribute this month with an album honoring 'the Quiet Beatle', George Harrison.

George Fest – subtitled A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison – is a live album and concert DVD package documenting the tribute concert to former Beatle George Harrison, held at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on 28 September 2014. Among the many performers were Brian Wilson and Al Jardine of the Beach Boys, Dhani Harrison, Norah Jones, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, Conan O'Brien, Spoon's Britt Daniel, and Brandon Flowers of the Killers. Other performers included Ben Harper, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Ann Wilson of Heart, and Ian Astbury.
