 Bridge School Benefit 2005

The 19th annual Bridge School Benefit, an acoustic music festival, which played two sold-out performances this weekend in support of this extraordinary school for severely handicapped children founded by Pegi Young, Neilís wife and business partner.

Bridge School concert appearances have always offered performers the opportunity to give something back to society and step outside their musical safety zone. With pure acoustic performances and half-hour sets, the lists of esteemed and distinguished artists continue to amaze concert goers again and again.

This yearís line up consisted of Good Charlotte, Los Lobos, Bright Eyes, Jerry Lee Lewis, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Crosby Stills, Nash & Young

Young and his longtime friends Crosby, Stills and Nash brought their 11-song set to a dramatic close with the classic "Teach Your Children," as they did 19 years ago at the first Bridge School Benefit in 1986. Once again The Bridge School Benefit Concert was the pinnacle of the 2005 Shoreline season and we canít wait to see what they have in store for next years 20th anniversary show.
