Bruce Springsteen, the Who's Pete Townshend, Jackson Browne, Nona Hendryx, Little Steven Van Zandt and other artists will be taking part in "Land of Hopes and Dreams: A Celebration of Dave Marsh's Works and Visions" — a virtual conference honoring the Pontiac-born music journalist and author
Running April 30 through May 15, the conference features a variety of sessions about or inspired by Marsh's works. A pair of panel discussions on Saturday, May 1, will focus on the Waterford Kettering High School graduate's Detroit-area roots — "Creem and the Origins of Rock Writing" at 11 a.m. and "Detroit and Beyond," featuring the MC5's Wayne Kramer and John Sinclair, at 4 p.m.
Dion will perform as part of a session on the evening of May 8, while a Spotlight Conversation with Marsh — who helped to start and edit Creem magazine in Detroit while a student at Wayne State University — streams at 8:30 p.m. May 14 via the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's YouTube channel.
Other sessions are available for free via landofhopeanddreams.co.
