RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Willie Nelson and the annual Farm Aid
concert and food festival are coming to North Carolina.
The concert is scheduled for Sept. 13 in the Walnut Creek
Amphitheatre in Raleigh. It features performances by Nelson, who is Farm Aid
president and co-founder, along with fellow board members John Mellencamp, Neil
Young and Dave Matthews. Local artists also will perform.
Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $45 million
through the festival to help family farmers keep their land and publicize
locally grown food.
Those in attendance can eat food from vendors, meet local
farmers and learn about cultivating land.
Tickets for the concert go on sale in August, and prices
range from $49 to $175.
