“What are you going to do the next time you see a Farmers’ Market” — Neil Young

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

We were blown away with the number of people who went out and heeded Neil Young’s call to stop at their local farmers market.

“What are you going to do next time you see a farmers market? Say hello to a farmer, buy something. Get real. Buy something good.”

His words resonated because the connection people feel buying from farmers markets makes intuitive sense, both for financial and community-building reasons. Check out a few of the many callouts we received on social media from people who’ve stopped to chat with a farmer and buy a local pumpkin, apple or two. And let us know if you’ve visited your local farmers’ market lately!

The second leg of the Outlaw Music Festival unofficially came to an end last night in upstate New York with a show at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs. On Sunday, the bill featured performances from Particle Kid, Lukas Nelson & The Promise Of The Real, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Sturgill Simpson and Willie Nelson. For the first and only time on the packaged tour, the lineup also featured a set from Neil Young and Promise of The Real.

Young and his frequent backing band delivered a 13-song set that followed a similar script to their appearance the day prior at Farm Aim with a notable addition of the debut of a new song. The legendary musician got his portion of the night underway with a “Tell Me Why” and “Field Of Opportunity,” both of which had been played the previous night. The opener off After The Gold Rush was given the full band treatment for just the second time since 1987, while the subsequent tune from Comes A Time had been sitting on the shelf since 2015 prior to this weekend’s pair of performances.

From there Young & Co. continued to dig in for some deeper album cuts with “Country Home” from Ragged Glory and “Show Me” from Peace Trail. “Heart Of Gold” kicked off a stretch some of Young’s more well-known material that featured the likes of “Lotta Love,” “Human Highway” and “Powderfinger.” Prior to their take on “Powderfinger,” Young delivered the first-ever performance of a brand-new song that is tentatively being called “(Eternity).” A song later “Are You Ready For The Country?” got an electric band rendering for the first time in over two years. Young and Promise Of The Real closed out their set with “Ohio” and “Rockin’ In Free World.”

Young also participated in Willie Nelson’s headling set. He joined the 85-year-old for a mid-set performance of “On the Road Again” and reemerged during the finale that featured “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” and “I’ll Fly Away.”

“Paradox” the movie, with Neil Young, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Willie Nelson cameo and great original music

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Just finally watched “Paradox”, Neil Young and Daryl Hannah’s movie, streaming live now on Netflix.   Neil, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real star in the movie, with opening narration and a cameo with Willie Nelson.   I loved it. I’m going to watch it again now. The music is so beautiful.

Willie and Neil commit a crime.

It has everything you really want in a movie;  loose plot line that keeps you thinking; Willie Nelson narrating, great music by Neil Young and Promise of the Real, handsome cowboys; Particle Kid Lukas Autry Nelson Tato Melgar Anthony Lo Corey McCormick. Willie and Neil commit a crime together, Neil rides a dog sled in the show,  message about saving seeds, lots of music, beautiful scenery, funny dialogue, poker, tipis, partial nudity, best cover of Willie Nelson’s Angel Flying Too Close to the Sun you’ll ever here, Micah playing Neil’s organ; Tato taking a bath,  double outhouse scenes.  Like I said, everything.

I don’t know how long it will be streaming, but watch it if you can, get the soundtrack. You’ll thank me later.

“Happy Birthday, Willie. Keep on Rockin”
