Electric guitar legend Bob Dylan is set to perform at a special concert at the White House next month.

The evening, which is a celebration of the civil rights movement and part of Black History month in the US, will take place on February 10th 2010.

In Performance at the White House is to be hosted by President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, along with Morgan Freeman and Queen Latifah.

As well as electric guitar player Dylan, a host of stars have been lined up for the show – including Smokey Robinson, Seal and Jennifer Hudson.

Piano player John Legend will also be appearing.

"The evening will feature songs from the Civil Rights Movement performed by these top entertainers, as well as readings from famous Civil Rights speeches and writings," said a spokesman for the show.

Several of Dylan's songs from the 1960s tackled the issue of racism in America, including Oxford Town, a track about the first black student to enrol at the University of Mississippi.
