Also newly-announced performers of the awards show are Yolanda Adams, Martina McBride, and Florence Welch of the Florence and the Machine.
Folk legend Bob Dylan is set to take the stage alongside The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 13. The "Blowin' in the Wind" hitmaker will play his acoustic guitar with the rising folk rock bands in a three-act mini-set, which will mark Dylan's fifth performance at the big event.
Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich tells the Los Angeles Times, "I don't think either of these bands would be on a stage if it wasn't for the music of Bob Dylan. I think for the harmonies alone it should be something special. You don't know what you've got, what the blend is, until you see it, but I think it could be fantastic."
Dylan joins a long list of stars rocking the 2011 Grammys - Barbra Streisand, Sir Mick Jagger, Eminem, Justin Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lady GaGa are all slated to perform on stage.
Another new performers are Yolanda Adams, Martina McBride, and Florence Welch of the Florence and the Machine. They will pay tribute to Aretha Franklin along with Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson. New presenters are Marc Anthony, Jamie Foxx, Jewel Kilcher, John Mayer, Pauley Perrette and Donnie Wahlberg.
