We won’t have Farm Aid again in Raleigh this year, but there’s another pretty big country-leaning festival coming to Walnut Creek this fall. And like Farm Aid, this one also features Willie Nelson: the American Roots Music & Arts Festival. It’s set for Oct. 17-18, with Granite Falls native Eric Church headlining both nights.
So far, the rest of the lineup ranges from college-radio stars Modest Mouse to rocked-up hip-hop band The Roots, plus Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon, Grace Potter, Chris Stapleton, 2014 Farm Aid headliner Nelson and more.
Tickets go on sale Monday, with two-day ticket prices starting at $79 and going to $1,000. There will be no single-day tickets.
Check livenation.com for further details.
Starting bid: $3,999.99

My friend Ben Holmes framed the poster I gave him, from a Willie Nelson & Family show at the Fillmore in San Francisco. It was one of those times when WN&F played several shows, and they gave a poster out each night as you left. Usually, it is a different poster each night, but that year, it was this beautiful horse photo. Fun to share my extras.
