Three years after Neil Young‘s last Bridge School Benefit Concert was staged, a new event is slated to take place that will help raise money for the facility co-founded by Young’s late ex-wife Pegi.

The concert, dubbed Harvest Moon: A Gathering, is scheduled for September 14 at the Painted Turtle camp in Lake Hughes, California, and will feature performances by Neil, singer/songwriter Norah Jones and indie-rock artist Father John Misty.

The show will benefit The Bridge School, which provides education to children with severe speech and physical impairments, and The Painted Turtle, a nonprofit founded by late actor Paul Newman that offers children with serious medical conditions a traditional camp experience for free.

Those purchasing tickets for the Harvest Moon gathering also will be able to enjoy a picnic cooked and served by local celebrity chefs, and beer and wine tastings presented by California breweries and wineries.

The Painted Turtle camp is located about 65 miles north of Los Angeles on a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains.

Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday, July 19, at 10 a.m. PT. Visit for full details.

The Bridge School Benefit Concert, a series of star-studded acoustic shows, took place almost every year from 1986 to 2016.
