Organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, the Bridge School Benefit Concert is an annual nonprofit charity event held in October to raise funds for the school’s programs for children with severe speech and physical impairments.

On Saturday night, September 15 at 8:00 p.m., the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and local affiliate  KEET-TV will have some of the biggest names in music participating in the all-acoustic concert held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View.

This 25th anniversary concert special includes Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, David Bowie, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, Dave Matthews Band, Simon and Garfunkel, and The Pretenders.

It’s free and part of KEET’s annual pledge drive.  Watch and enjoy.  Make a pledge if you like.  It supports public programming for the North Coast and the Bridge School for viewers like you.

 

You can catch Neil’s broadcast on air, cable, or satellite, on Channel 13 (or Channel 113 for those high-definition cable subscribers).

The Bridge School is a non-profit organization that ensures individuals with severe impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of alternative communication, assistive technology, and the development of
innovative life-long educational strategies. 

It is an internationally recognized leader in the education of children who use augmentative and alternative communication, and has developed unique programs and highly skilled trained professionals in the use of state-of-the-art technology.

The school was founded by Neil & Pegi Young.  Neil and Pegi’s sons Ben and Zeke both suffer from cerebral palsy.

    Looks to be a brillaint event. There are so many people benefiting from advances in AAC. The internet means that people can now research their own devices instead of just being ‘prescribed’ something that in the past they did not always want. The iPad and other tablets have made the whole field more inclusive and will shake things up for current manufacturers who previously enjoyed a niche with very high barriers to entry and prices to match.
