Next month, Blackbird Presents will offer The Last Waltz Nashville: The An All-Star Celebration of The Band’s Historic Farewell Concert, which will feature an array of artists playing the music of that 1976 Thanksgiving performance, including a rare appearance from iconic Band guitarist and songwriter Robbie Robertson.
