“There is a town in north Ontario” where Neil Young will be tonight, one of Canada’s most legendary singer/songwriters — and it’s Omemee in Kawartha Lakes.

Young will play here at Coronation Hall, a venue which seats at most 225 people.

The acoustic concert will be livestreamed by CTV at 8 p.m. ET on various platforms, including CTV.ca, iHeartRadio.ca and on Facebook internationally.

On Friday, CTV said proceeds from the show would go to Scott Young Public School, named after Neil’s father who was a novelist, journalist and early host of Hockey Night in Canada.
