Farm Aid adds “Hearts of Darkness” to concert lineup (August 13, 2011)



Today, Farm Aid announced that Kansas City afro-beat, soul-funk band Hearts of Darkness will play at its all-day music and food festival this Saturday, Aug.  13. Hearts of Darkness recently performed at the Kanrocksas Music Festival this  past Saturday.

As  Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Matthews and the rest of the  Farm Aid 2011 lineup make their way to Kansas City for Farm Aid’s 26th  annual benefit concert on Saturday, Aug. 13 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park,  Kansas City-area farmers, businesses and nonprofit organizations are pitching in  to make sure this year’s benefit concert is distinctive to Kansas. These local  partners will help Farm Aid inform concertgoers about the work family farmers do  to protect our economy, our environment and our health in the HOMEGROWN Village;  bring family farm-sourced ingredients to HOMEGROWN Concessions®; and achieve recycling and  composting goals.

Farm Aid 2011 will feature performances by Farm Aid president and founder Willie Nelson and board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, who will perform with Tim Reynolds, as well as Jason Mraz, Jamey Johnson, Jakob Dylan, Billy Joe Shaver, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Ray Price, Robert Francis, Will Dailey & the Rivals, Rebecca Pidgeon, The Blackwood Quartet, John Trudell and Hearts of Darkness.
