If you don’t already know Chrissie Hynde for the 30+ year mark she’s made in the music industry, you owe it to yourself to check out the impressive catalog of tunes she’s penned with her fellow Pretenders.

The Ohio homegirl – a longtime vegetarian, PETA proponent and vegan restaurant proprietor of Akron’s The VegiTerranean – considers herself a seriously staunch animal rights activist first and a hobby musician second.

Famously known to dive head first into animal welfare protests (such as attempting to ban horse-drawn carriages in New York City, publically denouncing McDonald’s for not serving cruelty-free fare and protesting Australia’s wool industry and live sheep exportation), Hynde is getting back behind her guitar for an acoustic performance with current musical partner JP Jones.

The Pretenders’ front woman allied herself with the Welsh singer-songwriter/producer and a collection of handpicked musicians to create JP Chrissie & The Fairground Boys, which Hynde describes as like “nothing you’ve ever heard before.”

In an effort to help perpetuate the rehabilitation of abused and neglected farm animals, the duo will hold a special concert on Saturday, May 29, 2010 at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Tickets are a reasonable $30 in advance/$35 on the day of the show and, of course, all the proceeds go to the sanctuary.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak at what you can expect – this performance was filmed on April 26, 2010 at Hollywood’s Bardot club.
