Lakota artist to join Neil Young, Willie Nelson at #nokxl benefit


Two music legends — Neil Young and Willie Nelson — will perform a benefit concert on Sept. 27 on a farm near Neligh, Nebraska that is on the route of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and also crosses the historic Ponca Tribe “Trail of Tears.” Also performing will be Lakota hip-hop artist Frank Waln, and the “Stopping the Pipeline Rocks All-Stars,” some of the local Nebraska artists who recorded the benefit album in the solar-powered barn built inside the path of the Keystone XL pipeline last summer. “Harvest the Hope” Concert tickets will go on sale the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 20. For more information, visit BoldNebraska.org. [Indian Country Today]
Waln appeared on a July Native America Calling broadcast on University of New Mexico-based KUNM: he is a thoughtful and exciting role model for young American Indians. KILI in Porcupine also airs the live call-in program and sends many who comment.
