The Neil Young Tribute, Live and on YouTube



Here's a quite amusing entry into The Music of Neil Young You Tube Contest. It's by Suktankawin of “Hitchhiker” from Le Noise and using model horses on a little ranch. Pretty cool. (More on the making of video at Little Shakey's Production Disaster | Rockin’ In A Small World).

A tribute to the music of Neil Young will be held at Carnegie Hall, New York City on February 10th, 2011. As we reported last year, tribute artists include: Patti Smith, The Roots, Cowboy Junkies, Bettye LaVette, & others.

Presented by Michael Dorf, entrepreneur and impresario, the tribute will feature 20 artists benefiting music & arts programs for underprivileged youth. Confirmed so far, include: Patti Smith, The Roots, Cowboy Junkies, Bettye LaVette, Aimee Mann, Shawn Colvin, Bebel Gilberto, Keller Williams, Joan Osborne, Mason Jennings, J Mascis, Pete Yorn, DeVotchKa, Joe Purdy and featuring Larry Cambell in the house band.



In addition, a contest has been announced -- Rockin' in the YouTube World: The Music of Neil Young You Tube Contest :
"Tonight's the Night to show your musical talents.

Do you Dance Dance Dance when you hear a Neil Young tune? Is Rockin' in the Free World not just a song, but your personal mantra? Do you believe that Rock and Roll is Here to Stay?

Want to see all your favorite Neil Young songs brought to life at one huge tribute event, and stick around for the after-party with some other very special VIP guests?

For the ultimate Neil Young fan who has spent years mastering Heart of Gold, this is your moment.

Create an original Neil Young Tribute video and upload your video to our YouTube Channel HERE of you performing/playing/interpreting an original Neil Young song.

We will assess all valid entries and the individual whose entry we decide is most creative and entertaining will win two VIP tickets to the Neil Young tribute concert at Carnegie Hall (www.neilyoungcarnegie.com) on February 10th, 2011 in New York City, and then party it up at the VIP after-party at City Winery in Soho (www.citywinery.com).

Full contest details at City Winery.

Some interesting entries:
Then there’s this animated, synth pop version of “Cinnamon Girl” by LewTeller. But there are also some straight covers very well done, like this cover of “Sugar Mountain” sung by Randy Haddock, a Brooklyn singer near Sugar Mountain in North Carolina. And this cover of “Don’t Let You Down” by Quermann1 is almost eerie. Quermann1 is actually Olaf Lange, from Ruggen, Germany, a gardener in the cover band Forever Young.

Keep on YouTube'n in free the World!

Entries can be viewed here: YouTube - CityWineryNYC's Channel:

The night before the Carnegie Hall benefit, Larry Campbell and his band will present The Music of Neil Young, Live Rehearsal show at New York’s City Winery. Campbell will work through a variety of Young’s songs with the help of several featured Carnegie Hall performers. City Winery owner Michael Dorf is the driving force behind The Music of Neil Young benefit show.

100% of the net proceeds from this event to benefit: Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools, Church Street School for Music & Art, The Pinwheel Project, Music Unites, The American Symphony Orchestra and Young Audiences New York.

Here's a story about the production of suktankawin's video. Little Neil and little Dan had some serious trouble in little Hollywood:

Danke!

Now, it's in German, so what's the translation essence? Something about eating or editing problems??

It's a google-auto-translation and it's makin' it even more funny. Yes, its about an editing problem within YTube. Small World = small problems ;-)
