Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews & More To Perform Live For ‘At Home With Farm Aid’
Farm Aid is teaming up with AXS TV to present a special broadcast, At Home With Farm Aid, which will see at-home performances from Farm Aid president Willie Nelson — along with his sons Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson — as well as Farm Aid board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews. The special concert benefiting farmers impacted by the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic will take place on Saturday, April 11 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and airing on AXS TV and at Farm Aid’s website.
“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us,” Willie Nelson said in a statement. “One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers. Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now!”
