This weekend, Farm Aid celebrated 25 years of support for American family farmers, making it the longest running benefit concert series in America. In addition to providing $37 million in aid, the festival has also turned out some great music over the years. This year was no different, featuring performances from Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, & John Mellencamp topped off other MOR faves Jeff Tweedy and Band of Horses.
A new addition to this year’s festival is the addition of pro-shot HD videos for a great deal of the show’s performances. While these videos are lightly destined for DVD or Public Access TV somewhere down the road, you can check em out for free now. Below are a few of our favorites, but you can also check out Farm Aid’s YouTube page for the whole lot. Like the videos and what the festival is all about? Why not throw them a couple bucks while your there.
