Dion, and Pete Townshend.

As previously announced, Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt and Jackson Browne will be among the participants in “Land of Hope and Dreams,” an online series billed as “A Celebration of Dave Marsh’s Work and Vision,” taking place from April 30 to May 8. And now, Pete Townshend and Dion have been added to the lineup.

Townshend will add a message to the conversation between Springsteen’s manager, Jon Landau, and writer Caryn Rose, April 30 at 8:30 p.m. And Dion will add a message and performance to the conversation between Springsteen, singer-songwriter and activist Nona Hendryx and senior director of NPR Music Lauren Onkey, May 8 at 8:30 p.m.

Marsh is a veteran rock journalist who written extensively about Springsteen since the ’70s. According to the event’s web site, the goal of the series is “to re-create online the kind of warm, smart, and iconoclastic community that Dave Marsh has nurtured for many years. The discussions will shine a spotlight on the insights and provocations Marsh has given us for the past 50 years, highlighting their continued vitality in today’s cultural and political landscape.”

The webinars are free, though preregistration is required. According to the website, “We have a limited number of registrations available; if interest exceeds capacity, we may offer a simulcast via YouTube.”

Donations are suggested on the site for The Kristen Ann Carr Fund, which honors the memory of Marsh’s late daughter by raising funds for sarcoma research.
