Farm Aid, the non-profit organization whose mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America, presents a special broadcast of At Home With Farm Aid, featuring performances by acclaimed artists and Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews, on Saturday, April 11, at 8pm ET.
During the hour-long live event, Willie, Dave, Neil, and John’s live sets will simulcast on both Willie Nelson’s and Dave Matthew’s exclusive SiriusXM channels. Listeners can stream both channels for free on the SiriusXM app now.
At Home With Farm Aid reunites Farm Aid president Willie Nelson, joined by his sons Lukas and Micah, with fellow music legends and Farm Aid board members Mellencamp, Young, and Matthews for an intimate performance to raise funds and awareness for farmers impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The unique concert captures the quartet as they each tune in from their own homes and studios to deliver an unforgettable night of music that fans will not want to miss.
The special concert broadcast airs as part of AXS TV’s new “@Home And Social” initiative-an ongoing series giving artists a platform to broadcast live performances from their homes and studios directly to their fans, with proceeds supporting those in need as a result of the coronavirus. Viewers can enjoy the simulcast on AXS TV and at www.farmaid.org, in addition to the audio broadcast on Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59) and Dave Matthews Band Radio (Ch. 176).
For more than three decades, Farm Aid has worked diligently to build a dynamic family farm-centered agricultural system benefiting farms both big and small. Now, with COVID-19 presenting farmers across the country with a new set of challenges to overcome, Farm Aid is responding immediately to invest in farmer-led solutions to the COVID-19 crisis; make emergency grants to farmers and ranchers in need; create comprehensive resources for farmers; connect farmers to legal, financial, and mental health support resources; support local, state, and national farm organizations; and advocate for COVID-19 recovery funds and resources from the federal government for short-term relief and long-term resilience.
“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us. 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,” said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson. “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!”
