Robert Plant and country star ALLISON KRAUSS are among the stars paying tribute to folk legend HUDDIE LEDBETTER at an upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame benefit.

The ninth annual American Music Masters series, hosted by Harry Belafonte, will take place next week (07NOV04) in Cleveland, Ohio.

The late Ledbetter, also known as LEAD BELLY, is famous for his 12-string guitar style and for writing such classics as ROCK ISLAND LINE and COTTON Fields.

John Hiatt, Los Lobos and Dave Alvin are also performing at the tribute.
