Annual charity concert Farm Aid, which raises money to help family farmers maintain their land, returns to Pennsylvania this year. Last held in Burgettstown, PA in 2002, the concert will feature performances by Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews. Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, the Avett Brothers, Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Valerie June, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Insects vs. Robots are also on the bill.
“Family farm agriculture is the heart of Pennsylvania,” Nelson said in a statement. “What’s happening in western Pennsylvania and the region shows us that we can count on family farmers to strengthen our communities and connect people. Whether we live in rural or urban places, food — and music — brings us all together.”
Tickets for the September 16th show at Burgettstown KeyBank Pavilion go on sale Friday, June 23rd at 10AM via LiveNation.com, and at the KeyBank Pavilion box office. Presale begins at noon on June 14th via Ticketstoday.
