The Farm Aid Concert kicks off at 1pm on 9/20 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA. Great tickets still available for this show. Check them out here: Farm Aid Tickets
The country’s longest running benefit concert series, Farm Aid, will be coming to Massachusetts for the first time this September. Back in 1985, American farmers were struggling in an economic lull so musicians Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp came together and played a benefit show to raise money for those in need.
“In the beginning it was Willie’s intention to take it different places where as many farmers as possible could go to the show,” said Farm Aid executive director Carolyn Mugar. “Family farming has grown enormously in New England, and they’ve been asking us for a long time to come here. We’re very happy to be shedding a light on New England agriculture and how people can do more to support it.”
The Farm Aid mission is very simple, keep family farmers on their own land
“The only way to solve this is to do it locally,” said Nelson. “Let your neighbors grow your food so you don’t have to import it. That addresses not only the big expense, but the environmental problem. And at the same time you’re getting better food.”
The Farm Aid show will take place at the Comcast Center (formerly the Tweeter Center) on September 20, 2008.
“Farm Aid is vital in the sense that they’re here every year,” said Philip Korman, the group’s executive director. “The challenge with foundations is this year they’re excited and next year they’re excited about something else. Farm Aid supports the mission year to year.”
This year’s Farm Aid headliner, Dave Matthews, also supports the mission. Matthews who first performed at Farm Aid in 1994 was invited to join the board in 2001. He owns the Best of What’s Around farm, close to Scottsville, Va., where he grows organic vegetables, flowers, and herbs through a community-supported agriculture program.
“The corporate philosophy still dominates, but people are realizing that it’s not healthy and that we need to change the way we view ourselves in connection to the planet,” Matthews said.
Other performers are expected to be officially announced over the next few weeks while the official announcement of the show will come today by Mellencamp who is holding a news press conference at the Copley Square Farmers Market. Performers expected inlcude Mellencamp and Willie Nelson.
Farm Aid tickets will be available soon.
Ever since their first tour in 1994, Dave Mathews Band has been selling out shows across the country year after year. Their live sound draws large crowds to huge venues and along the way, the band has even recorded a few live albums during their tour stops. The 2008 Dave Mathews Band tour looks to be another great show to add to your calendar, and to accommodate fan requests, the band is even adding a few new stops where they will be playing shows at as well.
One of the treats about this tour is going to be the band debuting songs from their newest album which has yet to be released. They are currently recording the tracks in the studio working with some artists including Green Day, My Chemical Romance and Alanis Morrissette. Former guitarist and good friend of the band Tim Reynolds will be playing on the album as well, making his first recording with DMB since the album “Before the Crowded Streets” was released in 1998.
There are 54 shows scheduled during the summer tour, and DMB will be making stops in 40 different cities. The tour kicks off on May 30 at the Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown, PA and wraps up with three shows at UC Berkeley in Berkeley, CA on Sept. 5, 6 and 7. Some of the cities along the way where DBM will rock out include Hartford, CT, Mansfield, MA and George, WA.
