Farm Aid set for Sept. 19

Farm Aid 19852015 Farm Aid date is set for Saturday, Sept. 19 and this year they are celebrating a 30th anniversary.

Their press release reads:  “Our annual concert is a time for celebration where artists, music fans, farmers and people who love good food come together with one purpose: to keep family farmers on the land. We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s 30th anniversary concert will take place on September 19.

“That’s all we can share with you right now, but we wanted to be sure that you—our most loyal fans and supporters—are the first to know the date. We’ll announce more details as soon as possible singulair for asthma. We hope you can reserve that weekend to join Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews and many more artists to be announced for a festival of amazing music, good food, and a full day of experiences that celebrate family farmers.”

“The first Farm Aid concert featured more than 50 artists on one stage. In the 29 years since, hundreds more artists have given their time and talent to support family farmers. This year, we would like to invite even more artists to join us onstage as we celebrate family farm agriculture.” –– Willie Nelson

“The legacy of Farm Aid is twofold: in the change we’ve made in our farm and food system, and in the rich musical record of concerts held since 1985. The list of artists who have played on the Farm Aid stage is a who’s who of the best artists of our time.” – John Mellencamp

 

We know Zuman Jasper is excited.

Neil Young performs “Blowin’ in the Wind” for Dylan

What a beautiful, musical night it must have been Friday night, Feb. 6 at the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year show at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Bob Dylan, 73, was the honoree.

The line-up is pretty incredible: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young harmonized on “Girl from North Country.”

Acts from Neil Young to Bonnie Raitt to Bruce Springsteen performed across four different stages with no interruption. Aside from Bob Dylan lyrics, there were barely any words said, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Associated Press music writer Mesfin Fekadu writes: ” After accepting his award from former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the singer-songwriter (Dylan) went on to speak for 40 minutes, scrolling through page after page of his written speech.

“I’m glad for my songs to be honored like this. But, you know, they didn’t get here themselves. It’s been a long road and it’s taken a lot of doing,” he said.

Dylan’s speech ranged from him reciting his own lyrics to thanking Peter, Paul and Mary for covering “Blowin’ In the Wind” and making the song a pop hit. He also addressed his critics.

“Critics have been giving me a hard time since day one. Critics say I can’t sing, I croak, sound like frog. Why don’t critics say the same thing about Tom Waits?” as the audience laughed. “Critics say my voice is shot. That I have no voice. Why don’t they say those things about Leonard Cohen? Why do I get special treatment?”

Dylan, known for performing regularly, didn’t sing, but many of his friends showed up in his honor.

Beck kicked it off and played the harmonica, as did Alanis Morissette, who sang “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” Springsteen jammed with Tom Morello on “‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door'” while Young closed the night with “Blowin’ in the Wind.” Norah Jones played piano and Jack White played guitar. Other performers included John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Sheryl Crow, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Tom Jones, who earned rousing applause when he hit the stage.

Willie Nelson kicked off “Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)” with a slow burn, but paused as he waited for lyrics to appear on the monitor.
