Jack White to Headline Farm Aid 2014 Alongside Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp & Dave Matthews
Jack White doesn’t seem to care too much about baseball, but he does care about America’s farmers. And to show his appreciation he’s headlining this year’s Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina.
With a little help from Jack White, Neil Young made history last night (May 12) on The Tonight Show by recording a song straight to vinyl.
‘A Letter Home’ is “an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever,” Young’s website states.
“I’m kind of a producer, partially, an engineer, I’m not really good at either one. It’s hurt my records in the past. We’re performance-oriented: technical things don’t matter that much”
According to one blog, the duo have already recorded covers of a few folk classics.
Neil Young and co. put together a solid lineup of classic rock icons, chart-toppers and a jazz singer for this year’s Bridge School Benefit concert, which took place this weekend in Mountainview, Calif.
As Arcade Fire gears up for the release of their new album, ‘Reflektor,’ later this month, the band has been adding not-so-secret shows to their docket including an upcoming gig for Neil Young’s Bridge School charity.
