New Acquisitions at Youngtown Rock-n-Roll Museum
There is a town in north Ontario ... with a rock-n-roll museum.
Located in Neil Young's boyhood hometown of Omemee, Ontario, Canada, the Youngtown Rock N Roll Museum is a showcase of Rock N Roll artifacts and memorabilia from the first three decades of rock history, including extensive Young artifacts and exhibits.
Museum founder and curator Trevor Hosier has just acquired some new items for exhibit including “Natural Beauty”, a vintage 1970’s Texan acoustic guitar donated by Neil Young. The guitar was extensively played by Neil, used to write the classic song “Natural Beauty”, and accompanied him on his tour bus. Neil also saw fit to sign this wonderful guitar for the Youngtown Museum and in writing designated it “Natural Beauty”. The items were acquired via a special and generous arrangement with Neil in support of the museum.
More on Trevor's recent trip to California and his amazing Archives tour and photos are on Youngtown museum site.
