Following last week’s announcement that country veteran and Flatlander Joe Ely will host an all-star benefit for Haiti relief Sunday, Jan. 24, at the Austin Music Hall, the first batch of confirmed artists have been announced. They are: Asleep at the Wheel, Bruce Robison, the Flatlanders, the Gourds, Guy Forsyth, Jack Ingram, Joe Ely, Kelly Willis, Kinky Friedman, Paula Nelson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Reckless Kelly, Robert Earl Keen and Shawn Colvin. More artist confirmations — as well as the event’s beneficiary organization — will be announced this week.

Tickets, $28 advance and $33 at the door, are on sale now. The event will also include a silent auction. The Austin Music Hall hosted a similar benefit to assist victims of the South Asia tsunami in 2005.
