    Over two decades, Neil Young has hosted the Bridge School Benefit, a two-day festival which sees some of music’s biggest heavyweights come together in support of Bridge School. Founded in 1985 by Young’s wife Peggy and Jim Forderer, the Hillsborough, California-based school assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs.

    Set to take place October 23-24 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California, this year’s benefit will be highlighted by two performances from Pearl Jam — their last of 2010 — and the reunion of Buffalo Springfield, the legendary rock group which featured Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina (via Live 105.3).

    Another obvious highlight will come on Sunday when the duo of Elton John and Leon Russell support their forthcoming collaborative album by joining Elvis Costello, Ralph Stanley, Neko Case, and actor Jeff Bridges as members of T-Bone Burnett’s Speaking Clock Revue.

    Costello will also play his own solo set on Saturday, while the equally legendary Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson will team up for two joint performances on Saturday and Sunday. Other confirmed participants include indie rockers Modest Mouse and Grizzly Bear, UK musician Billy Idol, and songwriting legends Lucinda Williams and Jackson Browne, who will be joined by David Lindley.
