Sleeping in the Devil’s Bed: The Music of Daniel Lanois. An all-star salute to an incomparable musical legacy World Premiere, produced by Hal Willner.

The Luminato Festival has often fêted iconic Canadian musicians, but never one with the professional depth or breadth of Daniel Lanois. Making music, both as a singer-songwriter and as a producer, has been Lanois’ lifelong passion. While still in his 20s, he established his sterling reputation, producing a spectrum of Canadian artists, ranging from Martha and the Muffins to Raffi.

Global renown soon followed when frequent collaborator Brian Eno invited Lanois to co-produce The Unforgettable Fire for U2. His groundbreaking work with the band continued with The Joshua Tree, Grammy winner for Album of the Year. He has since produced albums for such varied superstars as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Peter Gabriel and Emmylou Harris.
