CONCERT TO BENEFIT MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUTH

Michael Dorf announced today the first artists confirmed to play a special tribute concert to take place February 10, 2011, at Carnegie Hall, celebrating the music of Neil Young. The initial, star-studded lineup of musicians honoring the legendary songwriter's music include: Patti Smith, Living Colour's Vernon Reid, DeVotchKa, Shawn Colvin, Bettye LaVette, Bebel Gilberto, Aimee Mann, J Mascis, Keller Williams, The Roots, Cowboy Junkies, Mason Jennings, and Larry Campbell as part of the house band. More information will be announced soon. The concert marks the seventh installment of an annual series to raise crucially needed funds for music education programs for underprivileged youth.

“Our decision to honor the music of Neil Young at Carnegie Hall generated instant, tremendous feedback," says Dorf. “We've already sold a significant number of tickets and premium packages, and we can't wait to share this incredible evening of music. Another sell-out crowd will bring the cumulative total donated by the series up to a half-million dollars."
