Jakob Dylan, Glen Hansard, Aaron Neville, Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield Join Momentous Tribute To The Music Of Neil Young At Carnegie Hall Feb 10

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) Even more big names have stepped up to pay tribute to the music of Neil Young at the Feb 10 benefit concert at Carnegie Hall. Jakob Dylan, Glen Hansard (The Swell Season), Aaron Neville, Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield have now been added to the star-studded lineup.

Curated by music impresario Michael Dorf, the full lineup for "The Music of Neil Young at Carnegie Hall" tribute also includes Patti Smith, The Roots, J Mascis, Living Colour's Vernon Reid, DeVotchKa, Shawn Colvin, Pete Yorn, Nada Surf, Bettye LaVette, Bebel Gilberto, Keller Williams, Larry Campbell, Ben Ottewell (Of Gomez), Cowboy Junkies, Mason Jennings, Joan Osborne, and Joe Purdy.

The concert marks the seventh installment of an annual series to raise crucially needed funds for music education programs for underprivileged youth. The total funds raised by the series are on track to exceed $500,000 with this year's concert.

Previous sold-out concerts presented by Dorf have honored the music of such timeless artists as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., and The Who. 100% of the net proceeds from the concert will be given to six music education non-profits: The American Symphony Orchestra Music Notes, Church Street School of Music, Young Audiences, Music Unites All-Youth Choir, The Pinwheel Project, and FIKS (Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools).
