Willie recalls, “The first Farm Aid concert featured more than 50 artists on one stage. In the 29 years since, hundreds more artists have given their time and talent to support family farmers. This year, we would like to invite even more artists to join us onstage as we celebrate family farm agriculture.”
John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Neil Young are also on the Farm Aid board. We’ll keep you posted on the details for Farm Aid 2015 as they are announced.
Farm Aid has raised more than $45 million for family farmers across America since that first concert in 1985.
