T B Burnett philanthropist

T Bone Burnett does not keep the Oscar he won earlier this year for his musical contribution to "Crazy Heart'' out on display. Nor does he have a showcase for any of the 10 Grammy awards he's amassed over the years for his work on the "Walk the Line'' and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?'' soundtracks or on albums by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant and others.

Saturday night at the Citi Wang Theatre, Burnett presents the first in what he hopes will be a series of live concerts to benefit arts education in public schools via the Participant Foundation, the charitable arm of the film company releasing the acclaimed new education documentary "Waiting for 'Superman.' ''

Backed by a crack house band of Burnett studio regulars, the show will feature performances by Mellencamp, John, Russell, Costello, "Crazy Heart'' star Jeff Bridges, Gregg Allman, Ralph Stanley, the Punch Brothers, Karen Elson, Neko Case, and newcomers the Secret Sisters. The format will be akin to Burnett's "Down From the Mountain'' trek which followed the success of the "O Brother'' soundtrack, with each artist performing solo and in combination with other acts on the bill. "Everybody's being incredibly generous to do it,'' says Burnett.
