And for even more Dave Matthews content, check out this interview released today with news about the concert and his connection with Farm Aid’s message:
Matthews said that after a Farm Aid concert in Virginia, a couple hours from his farm, he found himself being stopped on the street and thanked by farmers who had been helped by the organization.
“It really does affect people, it has an effect on farmers — that’s the part that’s really hard for me to impart,” he said. “Because when I go state to state, and see all these people, all these local farmers who come in who have been affected by the efforts of Farm Aid, who have been on the edge and been helped by the efforts of Farm Aid, it just makes you feel like … you’re doing something worthwhile.”
