(Girlie) Preservation Hall Jazz Band have announced the special guests that will join them on stage for their 50th anniversary performance.

On January 7th, 2012 at 8:00pm they will grace the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall, with special guests Del McCoury Band, Trombone Shorty, GIVERS, Allen Toussaint, Blind Boys of Alabama, Tao Seeger, & Mos Def.

The group manages to evoke the spirits of times past in an ever-evolving modern context that has found them traveling around the world. Along the way, they have brought in collaborators of all musical stripes to play, honor, and reinterpret America's first true art form.

The PHJB have played and recorded with artists like Tom Waits, Pete Seeger, Ani DiFranco and My Morning Jacket. Their most recent collaboration has been with the Grammy-winning bluegrass outfit, the Del McCoury Band, with whom they released a joint album earlier this year titled American Legacies.

The Louisiana State Museum also just launched a major exhibition celebrating Preservation Hall's 50th anniversary at the Old U.S. Mint. Co-curated by Preservation Hall and the Museum, Preservation Hall at 50, tells the story of the venue's history through artifacts, photographs, film and audio clips, as well as interviews and oral histories. The exhibit is open now and will run through 2012.
