On Saturday, September 22nd, Bob and I had a full day of music and fun at Farm Aid.
Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on their land. Farm Aid accomplishes this mission by:
Promoting Food from Family Farms
Growing the Good Food Movement
Helping Farmers Thrive
Taking Action to Change the System
Farm Aid is in its 27th year, and features the best that music has to offer, while remaining true to its mission.
As a farmer’s daughter, Farm Aid is definitely a cause I believe in, and I am married to a musician and music lover. So, it was quite a combination to get to support a great cause and getting to listen to amazing musicians at the same time. The line-up was jam packed with musicians including: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Jack Johnson, Kenny Chesney, Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson.
We had great seats and it was a beautiful day to spend with about 30,000 other people.
Sorry, no pictures of Willie Nelson! I was too tired by that point in the evening, plus I had no desire to sit in the car while 30,000 other people tried to leave the parking lot too. 🙂 It was a great day, awesome music and I am so glad we got to be a part of Farm Aid. If Farm Aid is ever in a town near you, I highly recommend getting tickets the day they go on sale!!
