)-- The Lone Star Film Society (LSFS), is pleased to announce that it will present a rare and exclusive concert featuring Jeff Bridges and T Bone Burnett on Saturday, Nov. 13 as part of the Lone Star International Film Festival Fort Worth in Sundance Square. The concert will be held on the new covered patio at 8.0 Bar and is slated to begin around 10 p.m.
The Oscar winners will perform songs from the film “Crazy Heart.” Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at www.lsiff.com or, if tickets are still available, cash will be accepted at the door.
“This year’s festival is the best yet and this concert is certainly a high point. Jeff Bridges and T Bone Burnett are both artists at the peak of their careers but it is rare for them to perform together. This is definitely not to be missed,” said Alec Jhangiani, LSFS Artistic Director.
T Bone Burnett is a Fort Worth native and an 11 Time Grammy Award Winner. Burnett won an Academy Award for “Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song” for the film “Crazy Heart.”
Jeff Bridges won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Actor for his performance in “Crazy Heart.”

Bridges and Burnett will also perform at the festival’s inaugural Lone Star Film Festival Ball on Nov. 12 at the McDavid Studio in Sundance Square. At the event, a number of awards will be given, including the Stephen Bruton Award, which will be presented to Burnett. The Life Achievement Award will go to Bridges and will be presented by Peter Bogdanovich, Academy Award nominee and director of “The Last Picture Show.”
The sold-out Festival Ball and auction will generate funds to continue the development and expansion of the Lone Star Film Society and its events including the Lone Star International Film Festival in North Texas. Other notables in attendance are to include Callie Khouri Academy Award winning screenwriter for “Thelma and Louise,” Scott Cooper, Director, Writer, and Producer of “Crazy Heart,” Rob Carliner, Producer of “Crazy Heart,” and John Lee Hancock, “Blindside” Director.
