25jan7:30 pmSeth Warner and Friends present Neil Young's Harvest


Event Details

Advance discounted tickets $15. Regular tickets $20. Portland, Maine based
musician Seth Warner will lead an All-Star band in a complete live
performance of Neil Young’s much loved 1972
record Harvest . What is it about this record that
catapulted Neil Young to international prominence and the LP to become the best
selling album of the year and an instant classic? Is it the decidedly country
and organic acoustic flavors? The moments of symphonic grandeur and electric
grit hewn together? The laid back and intimate Nashville vibe from his backing
band “The Stray Gators”? Many longtime fans could rightly argue that it is not
Neil Young at his most consistent nor his best matched collection of songs –
but even so, it seems to be a product of perfect timing and an album truly of
its time and Seth  and his friends look to celebrate all of the elements
that contribute to the mystery, beauty and underlying joy
of  Harvest  at The Opera House.  Prior to
featuring the record  in its  entirety the band and special
guests will  begin the evening with a set of acoustic Neil Young material
selected from the course of his entire career. Joining Seth in the band will
be pedal steel guitarist Dan Beller-McKenna, bassist Scott
Elliot, featured vocalist, Susanne Gerry, pianist Marc
McElroy and drummer Marty Joyce.
