REPORT: Neil Young marries Daryl Hannah

Various media outlets are reporting that Neil Young married actress/filmmaker Daryl Hannah last weekend in California.

The Mirror broke the news after friends and fans offered their congratulations to the pair, who appeared to have wed in front of close friends on August 25 in a ceremony in Atascadero, CA following an earlier ceremony in the San Juan Islands aboard the rocker’s yacht.

“Congratulations to Daryl Hannah and Neil Young on their wedding today,” guitarist Mark Miller posted on Facebook. “May they have a long and happy relationship”; a few days later, he added: “I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page.”

A day after the ceremony, Hannah posted a cryptic message on her Instagram account alongside an image of a barn owl that read: “Someone’s watching over us.... love and only love.”

The couple’s relationship emerged in 2014 soon after Young filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years.

Hannah wrote and directed Young in her 2018 film, “Paradox”, with the singer and Promise Of The Real appearing on the project’s accompanying soundtrack release; she also oversaw Young’s December 2017 broadcast of “Somewhere In Canada”, a live event that saw the rocker perform in his former Northern Ontario hometown of Omemee.

Young previously shared a rare photo of the couple (above) at January protest march supporting women’s rights in Los Angles as part of a nationwide event.

On September 22, Young will be among the artists performing at the 2018 edition of Farm Aid in Hartford, CT; the event will also feature appearances by Farm Aid board members John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, and Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Particle Kid, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, and more.
