Bon Iver and The National's Bryce and Aaron Dessner have joined joined together for an upcoming concert. Put together by Bryce Dessner, the concert will feature the Dessner brothers on guitars, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon on vocals, eighth blackbird, and pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque.

For this concert, he brings together guests from a variety of backgrounds: his brother and close collaborator Aaron Dessner (The National), singer Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), and the Labèque sisters."
