Road to Farm Aid 2011 with Will Dailey

Road to Farm Aid is a musical road show featuring singer/songwriter Will Dailey, who will be performing at clubs and farms along the way to and from his performance at Farm Aid 2011.

Will Dailey and his band The Rivals will help raise awareness for Farm Aid's mission to keep family farmers on their land in order to guarantee an agricultural system that ensures farmers a fair living, strengthens our communities, protects our natural resources and delivers good food to all. At each event, Farm Aid's partners in the region will highlight the work they are doing to support family farm-centered food systems. Dailey and his band will also be offering free and discounted tickets to farmers.

The band will be posting updates on their experience on the tour on Farm Aid's blog. Each show will feature Farm Aid information and merchandise and they'll invite fans to enter a contest to win free tickets to Farm Aid 2011, to be held August 13 in Kansas City, KS.

Will Dailey is an acclaimed recording and performing artist, who is a two-time winner of a Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter. Dailey has released two full-length albums (Back Flipping Forward and Torrent) through CBS Records and his music has been featured on over 50 TV programs and films. He has appeared on stage with Neil Young, Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp at two Farm Aid concerts, and recently completed work on a Stephen King/John Mellencamp project produced by T Bone Burnett. After seeing Will Dailey in concert, the New York Post's Dan Aquilante favorably contrasted him with the performers on American Idol, writing, "Forget the last five months of force-fed artificial pop music on TV that just crowned a king (who I'm betting will be forgotten as quickly as he was created) – Will Dailey is the real deal."
