“Who’s going to stand up and save the Earth?” Neil Young once sang. Young has not been secret or silent about his environmental activism over the years with albums such as Earth (2016) or The Monsanto Years (2015).
In honor of the man who bucks the system, Jeff Liverman and a group of local musicians will perform a tribute concert, Dogtown Roadhouse Saturday, Nov 6, at 8 p.m. featuring the music of Neil Young. The proceeds will go to support the environmental work of SustainFloyd.
“It takes a village to keep the free world rockin’,” Young once said.
SustainFloyd, like Neil Young, also advocates for farmers.
“Farmers are the American heroes today. They are doing something with their hands that they’re sharing with their neighbors and their friends and families,” said Young. Having formed FarmAid in 1985 with other big-name rockers, Young has solidified his name in the arena of conservation issues, making him an inspiration for SustainFloyd, as it manages the Floyd Farmers Market and assists local growers and food producers.
You will be guaranteed some awesome music, a rockin’ good time, and a chance to support the environment and our local community. $5 tickets are available at the door.
