It’s time for another quality Osprey fundraising concert with a crew of class-act Shelburne County musicians performing their favorite Neil Young songs. Enjoy great live music and support your local Arts Centre at the same time.
Neil Young has been a well-known name in music over the last five decades. A fellow Canadian, a prolific guitarist, an instantly recognizable vocalist and a brilliant songwriter, Young has released a massive collection of songs over the years that have varied greatly in style from folk to country to heavy rock.
A group of talented Shelburne County musicians (many of whom are die-hard Young fans) will perform a tribute show on the Osprey stage featuring their favourite selections from Young’s long-standing musical career. Although Young been a member of iconic groups like Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, much of the evening’s selections will be from his 39 solo albums including many hits and a few rarities.
Support the Osprey and local music with songs by Neil Young!
