Phish performed Neil Young’s barn-burning classic with The Man himself as part of their Farm Aid appearance on 10/3/98. For many fans this pairing of artists is the kind of thing dreams are made of, and in their first performance together, they did not disappoint. At nearly 19 minutes, this version of “Down By the River” is a fully realized, jam-filled take on Neil’s powerful rock anthem.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
