Nashville's Ryman Concerts Update
Emmylou Harris & Neil Young in Nashville
More twists and turns on the upcoming concerts in Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium -- the "Mother Church of Country Music".
From a Reprise Records press release, the concerts will be on August 18th & 19th.
Neil will be joined by special guests, including Emmylou Harris, Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns, the Fisk University Jubilee Singers and Carl Gorodetsky and the Nashville String Machine.
Having just seen Emmylou Harris with Elvis Costello earlier this week, Thrasher can only imagine how great these concerts will be.
From the PR:
"He will be performing songs from his upcoming album "Prairie Wind," which is being called one of Neil Young's masterpieces, a moving series of songs reflecting his life's journey."
The concerts will be filmed by Jonathan Demme who shot the "Sleeps With Angels" videos and commissioned Neil for the Academy Award nominated title track of "Philadelphia".
Also, the "Prairie Wind" release date has been pushed back to a September 27th release.
