The school was co-founded in 1986 by Jim Forderer and Neil Young’s wife Pegi, parents with children who have severe physical and speech impairments with Dr. Marilyn Buzolich.
In 1986, the same year that the school was established, was when the very first benefit concert was held. It has taken place every year since except for 1987. Neil Young performs at the event each year. Past performers include Wilco, Tom Petty, Phish, Green Day, Thom Yorke, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band, Nine Inch Nails and Pearl Jam.
According to the website for Bridge School, performers mainly use acoustic instruments for the benefit shows.
