Farm Aid is coming to SPAC as the summer comes to an end.
The event...run by country music legend Willie Nelson...will be held Sept. 21. Performers will include him, and fellow Farm Aid board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, with more performers to be announced soon. Tickets go on sale to Farm Aid members June 18 and to the general public June 28. At a tour bus stop in Albany on Thursday, Nelson said the Northeast is fertile ground for new farmers and sustainable agriculture. Farm Aid's mission is to keep family farmers on the land and support the movement toward healthy, locally grown food.
