The Human Highway play Neil Young at Settlers Tavern
Join the Human Highway to celebrate 50 years of the Harvest album, with the 6-piece band playing m the album in its entirety, along with the Human Highway mix of songs which covers music from the beginning of Young’s solo career in the late ’60s, right through to the 21st century.
The band is equally adept at capturing the essence of Young’s two primary styles: from the gentle folk and country-rock of albums like “Comes A Time” and “Harvest”, to the electric guitar-driven rock of the Crazy Horse days.
The ‘Human Highway’ is fronted by long-time lovers of Neil Young, David Hyams and Rose Parker and the 6 piece line up also includes some of Australia’s finest – Roy Martinez on bass and keyboards, Russell Wilson on drums, fiddler Adam Gare, and Jeremy Threlfall on the pedal steel and guitar.
1972 was a year memorable for the Munich Olympics, a landslide victory for US President Richard Nixon and later, the Watergate scandal coming to light. Closer to home, Gough Whitlam became the first labour Prime Minister in 23 years, while that year’s Ashes series saw the emergence of Dennis Lillee as a giant of the game.
John Lennon and Carole King topped US album charts before Neil Young landed at no.1 on the Billboard’s album charts with ‘Harvest’. It was eventually the biggest seller of 1972 and his most commercially successful album, spawning the no.1. hit “Heart of Gold”. Harvest was also remarkable for the collaboration with the London Symphony Orchestra on the
tracks “A Man Needs a Maid” and “There’s a World”
