Neil Young hosted his formerly annual Bridge School Benefit concerts at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California on October 22 and 23, 2011. The acoustic shows that year featured Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, whose performance on this date six years ago featured Young and Marcus Mumford sitting-in.
Dave & Tim opened their October 23 set with “Bartender” and the guitarists continued with “Stay Or Leave.” They then wove together “You & Me” into “Dancing Nancies.” At that point in the set, Mumford emerged to augment a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.”
Following Mumford’s guest spot, Young took the stage to assist Dave & Tim on a rendition of “Oh Susannah,” the Stephen Foster-penned old-timey minstrel Neil recorded with Crazy Horse for their 2012 album Americana. Below are videos posted by Copperpot Landfill of the pair of sit-ins from this date in 2011:
