Willie Nelson is bringing Farm-Aid to our neck of the wood this year.  The annual benefit concert will be held at SPAC September 21st with co-founders John Mellencamp and Neil young.  Dave Matthews will also perform with more acts expected to be announced soon. 

Tickets range from $45-$150 and will go on sale Friday June 28th.  You can get them at Ticketmaster or at the SPAC box office.

‘Every time we have a Farm Aid, a lot of farmers show up and say, ‘Hey, keep it going,’ so it’s not a hard decision for us,’ Nelson told the Times Union.

Farm-Aid has raised $43 million since it began in 1985 to help small farmers.

Willie made the announcement yesterday on his tour bus while he was in New York. This is only the second time Farm-Aid has been held in New York state.  2007 the benefit was in New York City.

When more acts are announced we’ll let you know.  Kenny Chesney took part last year.  I wonder if he’ll sign on again this year.  Willie should also call James Wesley who can sing ‘Thank a Farmer.’
