Neil Young, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, “Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World’ (Farm Aid 2014) (Raleigh, NC)Saturday, September 20th, 2014
by Brad Bershad
This past weekend, the annual Farm Aid concert was held in Raleigh, North Carolina. Above, you can watch Gary Clark Jr.’s rip-roaring full set of psychedelic blues rock as originally webcast.
From the opening of Robert Petway’s blues standard “Catfish Blues” there is an electric atmosphere as the Austin, TX gunslinger and his band take command of the stage and deliver a top notch performance. The crowd filters in during the set, and by the time Clark and his band leave the stage, the seats that were empty at the beginning are all occupied. The amazing day of music also featured sets from founders Neil Young, Willie Nelson, and John Mellencamp, as well as Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Jack White, Delta Rae, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Jack White returned to the stage on Saturday to perform at Farm Aid, the annual charity concert organized by Neil Young and others that looks to benefit family farmers. White performed a 10-song set chalk full of White Stripes favorites like “Icky Thump”, “Hotel Yorba”, “Ball and Biscuit”, and “Seven Nation Army”, along with a pair of cuts from his new solo album, Lazaretto.
The biggest takeaway, however? White got his haircut (again), this time shaving the sides of his head while maintaining a Johnny Cash mop at the top. It’s interesting to say the least.
Watch the full performance below (his set begins near the start of the video). Update: The video is currently private — we’ll edit in a different video once it pops up. In the meantime, watch a few short clips and other Instagram videos.
