The national treasure that is Neil Young today announced on theNeil Young Archives site
he will be live streaming Fireside Sessions, a “down-home production" and live performance with his “lovely wife,” — i.e. the actress Daryl Hannah, serving as the “camera operator."
The news comes in the wake of Young and his band Crazy Horse postponing their arena tour amidst the Coronavirus crisis. While no exact date was given for his Fireside Session on the Neil Young Archives site, he advises checking out the Neil Young Archive blog, the aptly named “NYA Times-Contrarian,” and the blog’s Hearse Theater Schedule for more information.
In the short note (below), the outspoken Young said he is “dropping Facebook
very, very soon,” likely for social and political reasons.
In other news of Young's political activism, tomorrow night (Tuesday, 3/17), the NYA blog notes, Young will be performing at an online rally for U.S. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders along with Jim James and the Free Nationals which begins a at 7 p.m. at live.berniesanders.com.
And in even more Neil Young news, the 74-year-old rock star wrote on the archive site that he will soon be releasing his lost 1975 album Homegrown.
Young’s Fireside Sessions Announcement:
“Because we are all at home and not venturing out, we will try to do a stream from my fireplace with my lovely wife filming.
"It will be a down-home production, a few songs, a little time together...We will soon be announcing the first one right here at NYA in the Times-Contrarian and on the Hearse Theater schedule, as well as social media except Facebook. As we have previously announced, we are dropping Facebook very, very soon, so if you rely on FB to contact us, prepare for a change.
