“Save Yourselves! Support Farm Aid” — Neil Young

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

A look at Farm Aid’s thirty years of history working to keep family farmers on the land.

“Farm Aid supports a food system that is democratic, independent, competitive and locally based. This isn’t an exercise in nostalgia, it’s a commitment to a way of life. These are values worth fighting for.”
–– Eric Schlosser

Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual concert to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. For 30 years, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised $48 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.

John Mellencamp on 80-City Plain Spoken Tour! (free dowload of his new album with ticket purchase!)

Monday, October 6th, 2014


Here is your chance to see this legendary rock and roller, and champion of family farmers and the middle class, in a city near you! John Mellencamp is giving his fans in 80 cities a chance to see his show. His new material from new album is amazing, and of course he has so many great hits that he can’t play them all in one show, but he sure tries. They are coming to Red Rocks in July and I can’t wait.

Also, every ticket purchased for the 2015 Plain Spoken Tour includes a download of John’s new album Plain Spoken.

Tickets are available for all 80 shows on the 2015 Plain Spoken Tour. Visit the TOUR page for further details.
