Farm Aid 99 Taking Shape

Farm Aid president Willie Nelson recently announced plans for the national family farm organization’s benefit concert, as family farmers and farm supporters across the country rallied for relief from Washington’s misguided farm policies. Farm Aid ’99 is scheduled for September 12th at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, Va., just outside Washington, D.C. Tickets for the event go on sale Saturday, July 17th. The show will spotlight some of the country’s top music stars including Far Aid founders Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, as well as the Dave Matthews Band, Trisha Yearwood, the Mavericks, Steve Earle, Sawyer Brown and Susan Tedeschi.
