Elliott Smith would be turning 44 this year. But although it’s been ten years since his death, his contributions to both music and social justice have not waned. No Name #1: A Celebration Of The Life And Music Of Elliott Smith was staged by Smith’s sister, Ashley Welch, and featured a slew of musicians, many who had the opportunity to play alongside Smith.
Special guests included Chris Thile, Mary Lou Lord, David Garza, Young Hines, Christina Courtin, Katarina Guerra, Bob Dorough and more. Proceeds benefited New Alternatives For LGBT Homeless Youth. Our photographer Emily Korn was on hand to catch the tribute in all its sublime beauty.
