Punk poet Patti Smith and Split Enz veteran Tim Finn lead the lineup of musicians performing at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah (January 17-27). Along with such artists as Gavin DeGraw, Pat Monahan, Peter & Gordon, Sea Wolf, Butch Walker, and Missy Higgins, they will perform at the Music Cafe, a daily afternoon showcase for established and emerging acts.

Other music events at Sundance include a January 20 “Celebration of Music and Film” concert, which will feature performers connected to movies at the festival, including Smith (“Patti Smith: Dream of Life”), and composer Jean-Michel Bernard and director Michel Gondry (“Be Kind Rewind”).

Additionally, film composers such as George S. Clinton, Christopher Young, John Frizzell and former Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh will join directors Amy Redford (“The Guitar”) and Patrick Creadon (“I.O.U.S.A.”) at the January 23 round-table discussion “Music and Film: The Creative Process.”
