As many of us are home a lot more amid the coronavirus pandemic, farm advocacy nonprofit and annual festival Farm Aid is holding a virtual concert, "At Home with Farm Aid." It happens on Saturday, April 11 at 8 PM ET, and features performances from Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews. Willie, along with his sons Lukas and Mikah Nelson, will host, and you can watch on farmaid.org.
"The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us," Willie says. "One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers. Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now!"
In addition to Saturday's livestream, AXS TV is broadcasting "The Best of Farm Aid 2019" on Sunday, April 12 at 8 PM ET.
