Bridge School Concert Roster

-

I attended the 26th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert last weekend and it was AMAZING! I didn’t know what to expect — and it went a little something like this: 11 bands — all acoustic & outdoors on a beautiful Fall afternoon. Walking in, Neil Young was belting out his classic tune ‘Old Man’ . . . Wow! Really? . . . this was going to be good!

For the next 9 hours, the crowd was entertained by an impressive roster . . .
and I’ve included my 2-cent review

last but not least . . .
Neil Young & Crazy Horse  what can I say . . . that voice.
