This performance was lauded "Best Concert of the Year" by Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, and was recently recalled by Mr. Kot as one of the best concerts he's ever attended. This year marks the 23rd anniversary of that legendary performance Jeff Buckley was born in California's Orange County in 1966 and died in a tragic drowning accident in Memphis on May 29, 1997. He had emerged in New York City's avant-garde club scene in the 1990's as one of the most remarkable musical artists of his generation, acclaimed by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike. Our annual concert series is a tribute to our immensely talented friend, Jeff Buckley. This will be Uncommon Ground's 20th year hosting the event. The concerts are held in mid-November over Buckley's Birthday and sell out in advance every year. These events are supported by the Buckley's family and featured on the official Jeff Buckley website.
