Neil Young Fireside Sessions
On a semi-regular basis, Neil Young will host “Fireside Sessions” from his home in Telluride, Colorado. “Because we are all at home and not venturing out, we will try to do a stream from my fireplace with my lovely wife [Daryl Hannah] filming. It will be a down-home production, a few songs, a little time together,” explains the songwriting legend. Look for the next session at Neil Young Archives.
Just because we’re keeping our distance doesn’t mean the music has to stop. You can head to LiveNation daily for live streams from around the globe — follow artists live from their homes as they share music, stories, and more. Search for livestreams, or by day.
