Farm Aid’s 20th Anniversay
This September 18th, Farm Aid’s 20th Anniversay concert takes place in Tinley Park, IL – about 25 miles or so outside of Chicago. Artists scheduled to perform at this benefit include: Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, Arlo Guthrie, Buddy Guy, Emmylou Harris, John Mayer, and many more. Farm Aid is a US non-profit organization that works to keep family farms operational and to restore family farm-centered agriculture. In addition, they offer disaster relief to family farmers in times of drought. Of the artists performing at Farm Aid, Willie Nelson in particular has put his shoulder to the wheel by starting his company – Willie Nelson’s BioDiesel – that sells high quality biodiesel grown by family farmers. Are there any Folk Alley listeners planning to attend the concert next month? Or who have attended in the past?
