City and Colour to open Ottawa Fest-replace Neil & the Horse

The Ottawa Citizen has announced that City and Colour will replace Neil Young and Crazy Horse at the Ottawa Folk Festival on Sept. 4.

The Juno-winning band led by Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green has agreed to step into the headlining slot of the festival’s opening night, the newspaper writes.

Organizers had to scramble after losing Young, who cancelled his North American dates to give guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro more time to heal after breaking his hand earlier this month.

“It’s definitely been a challenging week, but I’d say I’m very pleased that Dallas Green (City and Colour) could accommodate us on such short notice,” says festival executive/programming director Mark Monahan in a news release. “He’ll make a great opening night for the festival.”

Young’s tour mate, Patti Smith, will also perform, as originally scheduled, accompanied by her band.

Refunds, refunds, refunds and more bands at Lockn’

Trey Anastasio Band, Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, Indecision and the Jeff Sipe Trio had been added to the lineup of the Sept. 7  four-day Lockn’ festival  at the 5,000-acre Oak Ridge Estate in Arlington, Virginia.

With Neil Young and Crazy Horse having canceled their appearance at next month’s inaugural Lockn’ music festival in Nelson County, event organizers say refunds are available, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Organizers stressed that refunds would not be given until returned tickets were received by Musictoday.

Canadian-born singer Gordon Lightfoot will replace Neil Young & Crazy Horse at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic on Aug. 31 at the Christie Lake Conservation Area in Dundas, Ontario, according to CBC Hamilton.

Lightfoot, 74, was brought in to replace Young after Crazy Horse’s guitarist Frank Sampedro injured his hand. The band has cancelled the North American leg of its current tour, including a headlining spot at the Ottawa Folk Festival, CBC reported.

Many have bemoaned the fact that they bought tickets to the picnic just to see Young and Crazy Horse. The organizers have offered a partial discount to ticketholders after the band pulled out of the show.

Organizers are offering a $40 refund. The new ticket price is $99.50.

“Ticket buyers who purchased through TicketMaster will be contacted by TicketMaster,” Gauthier said. “Ticket buyers who purchased from consignment locations, can pick up their refund beginning Saturday Aug. 24 at 10 a.m.”

Ticket refund debate

So far one concert venue has issued a press release stating that ticket-holders who wanted to see Neil & The Horse play will received a partial refund.

201304011-niel-x600-1365729134September Seventh Entertainment Limited announced  at a press conference that the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic will be offering partial discounts to Picnic ticket holders in light of the cancellation of Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

A press release states more acts will be added.

Canceled tour dates include:  The August 31, 2013 Greenbelt Harvest Picnic at Christie Lake Conservation Area in Ontario; Sept. 2  with Patti Smith at Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (promised to be the smallest place that Neil & the Horse would have played in recent memory); Sept. 4 Ottawa Folk Festival, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; and Sept. 7 Interlocken Music Festival at Oakridge Farm in Arlington, Virginia.

Since they are all festivals it’s possible none of the ticketholders will get full refunds but we have to wait and see. The ticket question has sparked debate with disappointed fans.

Every one of my records, to me, is like an ongoing autobiography. I can\'t write the same book very time. There are artists that can. They put out three or four albums every year and verything ***** sounds the same. That\'s great. Somebody\'s trying to communicate to a lot of people and give them the kind of music that they know they want to hear. That isn\'t my trip. My trip is to express what\'s on my mind. I don\'t expect people to listen to my music all the time. Sometimes it\'s too intense. If you\'re gonna put a record on at 11:00 in the morning, don\'t put on Tonight\'s The Night. Put on the Doobie Brothers.
