Playlist Description

The annual Bridge School Benefit has become a highlight of the Bay Area's concert schedule since in began in 1986. Founded by Pegi Young (married to Neil Young), Jim Forderer and Marilyn Bozolich, The Bridge School developed educational programs to service the special needs of Bay Area children with severe speech disabilities and physical impairments and has been serving the community for well over two decades now. The annual fundraiser concert has gained support from many of the biggest names in the music industry, with artists performing special acoustic-based sets in the outdoor setting of the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. The fifth annual Bridge School Benefit took place on November 2, 1991 and featured performances by Larry Kegan, John Lee Hooker, Don Henley, Nils Lofgren, Tracy Chapman, Sonic Youth, Willie Nelson and of course, Neil Young. On this night, Young would perform with a reunited Stray Gators, the musicians who played on his blockbuster "Harvest" album and would soon be featured again on his forthcoming album, "Harvest Moon." It was an emotional time in general for the Bay Area, as the legendary concert promoter Bill Graham had recently been killed in a helicopter accident and his public memorial service and concert was to be held the following afternoon in Golden Gate Park.
