Neil Young - Young To Be Honoured At Juno Awards
Rocker NEIL YOUNG is to be honoured in his native Canada for his humanitarian efforts.
The singer/songwriter has been named the recipient of the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at this year's (11) Juno prizegiving.
The honour is given to prominent musicians who give time, money and energy to charitable causes.
Young was selected for the honour primarily because of his work in co-founding the Farm Aid concert series in 1985, and founding the Bridge School for kids with severe speech and physical impairments.
A five-Juno winner in the past, Young will collect his latest honour at the ceremony on 27 March (11).
Past recipients have included Bryan Adams and Sarah MCLachlan.
