hennemusic is pleased to deliver a live stream of “At Home With Farm Aid”, a concert event in support of American farmers that features performances from Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews.

Hosted by Nelson and his sons, Lukas and Micah, the project sees the four Farm Aid board members are teaming up to raise funds for US family farmers during the global health crisis as each of the players join in from their own homes and studios to deliver unique live performances.

For more than three decades, Farm Aid has worked diligently to build a dynamic family farm-centered agricultural system benefiting farms both big and small.

Now, with COVID-19 presenting farmers across America with a new set of challenges to overcome, Farm Aid is responding immediately to invest in farmer-led solutions to the COVID-19 crisis; make emergency grants to farmers and ranchers in need; create comprehensive resources for farmers; connect farmers to legal, financial, and mental health support resources; support local, state, and national farm organizations; and advocate for COVID-19 recovery funds and resources from the federal government for short-term relief and long-term resilience.

“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us,” says Nelson. “One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers.

“Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now!”
