Farm Aid is coming to Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 13! The concert lineup features Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Jack White and more. See the full list at the Farm Aid site.

Farm Aid 2014 is an all-day music and food festival, and will feature a unique lineup of artists and genres and will offer concert-goers family farm-identified, local and organic foods with its own HOMEGROWN Concessions®. In Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Village, attendees will have the chance to meet farmers, engage in hands-on food and farm activities, and learn about the ways family farmers are enriching our soil, protecting our water and growing our economy, in addition to bringing us good food for good health.

“In North Carolina and across the Southeast, family farmers have struggled to stay on the land, but they have also pioneered new roads to economic sustainability. This region knows the value of its farmers and offers increasing opportunities for new farmers to build a strong regional food system. On the Farm Aid stage Saturday, September 13, we’ll celebrate family farmers and the healthy communities they’re growing for all of us.” – Willie Nelson

    Mr. Nelson,
    It would be an honor to have you do a farm aid event in North Iredell county, where all the milk is produced for the state, and also where one of the largest unemployment rates still exists. If I could afford you and your entourage at my farm, I would have done it years ago. Truth is NC farmers in our area are hurting, like many other states.
    My wish is for you to play for the people, the farmers supply the feast, and in a perfect world, the congressman and senators would have helped pick the food and be they would eat with everyone as one race. My goal is to show them that one should never bite the hand that feeds them, meaning all American farmers.
    It is understood that this is just one of a million letters that you get, and most are read and deleted. Let me say one last thing that I hope would help. My Grandfather bought the first 25 acres to take his two sons bird hunting, which they did until my grandfather died in ’82. My Father and Uncle kept buying land and taking their kids to play in the creek that was on our property. I was 4 when I was able to swim in it and discover all its secrets, even brush my teeth with that water. Really. That was 40 yrs. ago, and ten yrs. after the last of the big farmers sold their soul to the Fed. Gov’t in order to make any money. Now that creek is so polluted, along with my pond next to it, due to fermented cow waste, and chemicals used to clean out milk barn, I would never get in it or eat something out of it. It is sad when a man has to “join” the crowd thinking the grass is greener, to make an “honest” buck.
    If you could play here or even better at the Vanhoy festival, in Union Grove, NC, “fiddlers grove” and give the money, minus yours, to the farmers in our area, it would be a blessed day in deed. We all love your music and what you stand for outside of playing.

    Look forward to seeing you in VA Labor Day weekend. Bless you for taking the time to read my email.

    Sincerely,
    Celeste Johnson

  6. Dear Cousin Willie,

    I’ve been in Whiskey River/One Summer Dream mode since my wife died June 1, just trying to stop crying. But what I wanted to tell you is that my great aunt Edith was into genealogy and gave me two books, one on the Stark side and one on the Keith side of the family, and in the latter I found an entry for Willie Hugh Nelson. Goldthwaite, Texas and surrounding areas are where both my mother and father were/are from (my mother died, my father’s in a nursing home in Goldthwaite). I first saw a concert of yours in Kempton, Pennsylvania when I was living thereabouts, The post office lady, I forget her name, told me about you coming to town. Little did I know that she would actually introduce you and ride off in the bus. I saw you a couple of times after that, but that show is what made me an admirer of your music. You began and ended the show with Whiskey River, and kicked ass for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful thing I will never forget. Long story short, I look forward to seeing you and the rest at Raleigh in September, if I can get it together enough. My sweetie pie was an angel flying too close to the ground.

    Randy Lee Stark
