Hug Your Farmer Benefit Concert With Page, Fishman & All-Star Jam


Page McConnell by Rod Snyder
On January 12th, a devastating fire claimed Pete Johnson’s barn, winter storage crops and processing facility. I n an effort to assist the farm’s rebuilding and recovery, the best of Vermont’s local music scene will come together for an all-star jam session that includes Russ Lawton and Ray Paczkowski (Trey Anastasio Band), Bob Wagner, Clint Bierman and Peter Day (The Grift), Rich Price (The Sweet Remains), Jer Coons, Joshua Panda, Mike Clifford and Matt Hagen (Lendway), Will Evans (Barefoot Truth) and very special guests Jon Fishman and Page McConnell of Phish. One hundred percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to support this pillar of Vermont’s local food movement.

Amy Skelton of Pete’s Greens says, “The community response to the fire at the farm in support of Pete’s Greens and local food has been amazing. When spring crops emerge from the ground, we will need a place to wash and store them! This musical extravaganza will contribute a significant building block to the rebuild.”
