Last night [January 17] Neil Young played the third of his four ‘Honor The Treaties‘ concerts to raise money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund.
The show took place at Conexus Arts Centre, Regina, Saskatchewan.
The set list was almost identical to Young’s recent run of shows at New York’s Carnegie Hall, as well as the first two ‘Honor The Treaties’ engagements at Massey Hall on Sunday, January 12 and the Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall on Thursday, January 16.
The Conexus Arts Centre set however featured a cover of “Four Strong Winds“, a song by Ian and Sylvia that Young recorded on his 1978 album Comes A Time. Young last played the song live in 2011.
The ‘Honor The Treaties’ concerts will aid the native Canadians in their battle against oil companies and the government to preserve their land. The remaining ‘Honor The Treaties’ show take place on January 19 at Jack Singer Concert Hall, Calgary, Alberta.
