Neil Young: Heart Of Gold
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 7:00 pm
A little over a decade ago, following a life-threatening surgery, Neil Young emerged with the record Prairie Wind. To perform the music for the first time along with a thoughtfully selected peppering of classics, Young assembled a band of long-time associates and took to the stage of Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the home of the Grand Ole Opry. Etched in amber, forever enshrined to 35mm film and the reverent memories of those who were there, HEART OF GOLD stands not only as an exquisite paean to the muse that calls the Mother Church “home,” but also as a thoughtful and reflective flipside to the ferocity on display 25 years earlier in RUST NEVER SLEEPS. In one telling number, a duet with Emmylou Harris (a LAST WALTZ reunion, if you will) that is a tribute to his guitar which, as he tells, is making its own homecoming to the Ryman, as it once belonged to Hank Williams.
