Last weekend was the 2013 version of Farm Aid, held in Saratoga Springs, NY. It was again a great show for a great cause, and included one amazing moment above all else. Halfway through John Mellencamp’s set, he stopped the show to bring on a special guest who lived just up the road. Pete Seeger, 94 years young, walked out on the stage with his banjo and proceeded to bring the house down. When he launched into “This land is Your Land” he asked John, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and Neil Young to join him on stage for a tremendous performance (and a great photo op!!)
A nice weekend walking around farms and national forests, and hearing and photographing great musicians!
