Eddie Vedder & Jack Johnson Team Up For Kōkua Festival – Live From Home Performance
Jack Johnson hosted a virtual edition of his Kōkua Festival on Saturday with performances from Johnson, Willie Nelson, Ziggy Marley, Lukas Nelson, Jake Shimabukuro and more. The livestream event also saw Johnson team up with Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.
Video has surfaced of the Johnson/Vedder collaboration which began with Jack introducing Eddie ahead of a solo performance from Vedder of his song “Far Behind” from his 2007 debut solo album Into The Wild based on compositions for the movie of the same name. Then, the two singer-songwriters dueted on Johnson’s “Constellations” — originally appearing on the 2005 album In Between Dreams — via a split-screen. A live version of Johnson and Vedder on the song also features on the 2012 live LP, Jack Johnson and Friends – Best of Kokua Festival.
The final performance of the video saw a number of artists joining Johnson from their homes including Ben Harper, G. Love, Ron Artis II, Zach Gill and more for a rendition of Johnson’s “Better Together.” Watch all three performances in the video via PearlJamOnLine below:
