    Default SOTU 290 - Farm Aid/September




    This week will be a busy one for me. I will be traveling on Friday to Utah to take care of my grandchildren while my daughter and her husband go to Washington DC. They will meet with senators to discuss farming and agricultural issues. They are family ranchers on the Heaton Livestock Ranch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RJjlCIFLQk

    Farm Aid started as a benefit concert held September 22, 1985 to raise money for family farmers in the United States. Farm Aid is an organization that works to increase awareness of the importance of family farms. It is an annual concert of country, blues and rock music with a variety of stars. The first concert brought in 80,000 people and raised $9 million for the American family farmers and was organized by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young.
    Nelson and Mellencamp then brought family farmers before Congress to testify about the state of family farming in America. Congress subsequently passed the Agricultural Credit Act of 1987. History and Artists list here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm_Aid
    Here is a YT channel with performances https://www.youtube.com/user/farmaid/videos

    Choose any artist that has ever performed at a Farm Aid concert. Bring me songs they have done at any time in their career. Song limited to 5.
    Song writers can keep the creative juices flowing and bring me anything related to the farms, cattle, or September and you can write as many as you want ….....and of course slipping a barn owl in there somewhere would be a hoot!

    I will try and make comments as my day allows so I would appreciate it if you all would help me out by taking up some of my slack and making comments this week. Encouragement goes a long way in this little community that we have created!

    Participants will go in a hat and I will draw out several names for prizes. Prizes will be something from Greer Arizona, the place I go to get away from the heat.

    Usual rules-
    Ukulele prominent.
    Start time is Hawaii time, 00:01 the 3rd -12:59 the 10th.
    Newly recorded songs for this season.
    5 song limit for Farm Aid artists
    Unlimited originals
    Announce or list Season 290

    Lot to choose from. This is going to be a great Season! And 5 songs is not a limit. It's a challenge.......
    I own more ukes than I need. But not as many as I want.

    Any song the artist has ever done. Some of the artists have set list online listed by the public but that is very limiting so I am leaving it up to you to bring whatever song you want that the artist has done at any time.

    Well yes! Farm Aid is ongoing. The one this month hasn't even happened yet but they have those artists listed. If someone performed at FA in 1985 but performed something in 2017 your good to go. The performers have supported the cause so we will celebrate them.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm saying this because I noticed on the list that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers stopped performing at Farm-aid after 1986, which was their last appearance there at that time.
