It’s that time of year, as the legendary Neil Young and his wife Pegi hold the 27th annual Bridge School Benefit Concert at Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheatre. The annual concert was designed to provide assistance to the Hillsborough-based school that’s dedicated to aiding children with physical impairments. The school has consistently placed itself at the forefront of research dealing with educationally beneficial assistive technologies (AT) and augmentative and alternative forms of communication (AAC). Consequently, proceeds from the event support the school’s philosophy and mission.
This year’s lineup is finally set, with 10 acts participating in the all-acoustic show that spans two days (Oct. 26th and 27th). As always, the festival’s keystone feature involves Neil Young, himself. This year, Young will be appearing as a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted, folk-rock supergroup, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
The remainder of the lineup proves equally thrilling with participants coming from an array of genres, of both seasoned veteran acts to modern groups and solo musicians.
Besides CSNY, the following participants will be appearing:
Queens of the Stone Age
My Morning Jacket
Jack Johnson (Saturday only)
Tom Waits (Sunday only)
*Previously scheduled alt-rockers, The Killers, have been dropped from the lineup, as bassist Mark Stoermer is unable to appear due to personal reasons. Grammy nominated, surf-rocker, Jack Johnson, will appear instead.
