Emmylou Harris and Vince Gill are among the star-studded musicians who have been tapped to pay homage to the Everly Brothers at an upcoming tribute concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In July, officials at the Cleveland, Ohio music Mecca announced that the sibling duo will be honored as part of the organization’s 19th annual Music Masters series on Oct. 25.

Singer/songwriter Rodney Crowell will host the event, with acclaimed musicians Harris, Gill, Graham Nash, the Secret Sisters, Peter Asher and Shelby Lynne among the performers set to take to the stage.

Surviving member Don Everly will be present for the gig, and the concert has been billed as “the first major tribute in which the family will participate since Phil’s passing”.

Phil Everly died of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in January, and on the eve of the Grammy Awards on Jan. 25, Phil’s widow Patti, quickly organized a tribute concert at the Troubadour venue in Los Angeles, where Crowell was joined by Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder, Joe Henry, Jim Lauderdale, the Milk Carton Kids.

The Everly Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame in 1986.
