Les and Dave have always been supporters of the American Family farm! Eat Local, Eat Real Food, Eat Tasty Food!
2017 will mark their 3rd trip to Farm Aid together! Oh and they will actually be in the same place at the same time! Let’s just called it a plan day to appreciate eating really good food, supporting family farmers, hoping the King Family farm still show’s up in Aspinwall on Sunday’s and taking a moment to breathe! Oh and hopefully this time after Cheryl Crow sings that Soak up the Sun song the Patriot’s won’t demolish the Steeler’s in the 2nd half of an AFC Championship game.
Thanks to Farm Aid 2015 we actually had one weekend together in Chicago while we were living in Milwaukee. It was a great excuse to have Hanna hang with Reba and Crosby, ride Amtrak to Union Station, eat Lou Malnati’s Deep Dish and explore the Magnificent Mile all while getting around on the Red Line.
The following clips were carefully curated so you can have some music for your day! If you want more of any of the performances, please click forward.
We did get a taste of Chicago with Mavis Staples-
and were able to enjoy the following on our first trip to Chicago together.
Imagine Dragon’s 2015- Northerly Island- Chicago
Jack Johnson- 2015 Banana Pancakes, yes he did mix up the lyrics. You need to skip a few songs forward to hear the best song composed about Willie that day!
We did enjoy some Kacey Musgraves!
However most of the crowd was not happy with Neil Young and his set that night. It was interesting seeing the Chicago crowd turn on the rock legend.
Here’s some moments from the last years show! We were in the middle of moving so we missed going to Virginia, due to life priorities.
Willie Nelson- Always on my Mind 2016 in Virginia.
JOHN MELLENCAMP- Pink Houses 2016
DAVE MATTHEWS & Tim Reynolds- Two Step 2016 “Celebrate We Will”
NEIL YOUNG and Willie- Are there Any More Cowboys 2016, hang on for the next song too Rocking in the Free World.
