R.E.M. Bassist Plays Tribute Show

R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills and Hootie & the Blowfish

singer Darius Rucker have signed on to perform at the Sandy

Denny tribute concert, set to take place Nov. 21 at St. Ann's Church

in Brooklyn, N.Y. The concert, organized by guitarist Peter

Holsapple of the pop band Continental Drifters, will honor the late

British folk-rock singer who died in 1978 of a cerebral hemorrhage

following a fall. The tribute is part of an eight-part concert series ---

which runs from Oct. 24 to Nov. 21 -- to benefit the Arts at St. Ann's, a

non-profit organization dedicated to preserving all creative endeavors.
