Neil Young has announced the star-studded lineup for his annual Bridge School Celebrity Charity Benefit Concert.
The Bridge School Benefit is an annual non-profit charity concert held in Mountain View, California every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concerts are all organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, and benefit The Bridge School, an innovative organization educating children with severe speech and physical impairments.
This year’s 25th anniversary acoustic concerts will take place on October 22 and October 23, and feature performances by Foo Fighters, Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, Tony Bennett, Eddie Vedder, Diana Krall, Mumford & Sons, Beck and Jenny Lewis.
Founded by Neil Young, the school ensures that children with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative & alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications.
Bridge School has established an outreach program to share what is developed at the school with parents, professionals and users of AAC/AT across the world.
Neil and Pegi have organized the benefit concerts since 1986, with 1987 being the only year since then when the concerts have not occurred.
The shows will take place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. More information can be found here.
