‘At Home With Farm Aid’ To Stream Intimate Sets From Willie, Mellencamp, Neil, Dave Matthews

“At Home With Farm Aid” will reunite Farm Aid president Willie Nelson and board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews for what will be intimate performances Saturday, April 11, to raise funds and awareness for farmers impacted by COVID-19.

The 8 p.m. ET event will see each artist tune in from their own homes and studios, according to the announcement, and will air as part of AXS TV’s new “@Home And Social” ongoing series giving artists a platform to broadcast live performances.
“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us,” Willie Nelson said in a statement. “One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers.”
 Viewers can enjoy the simulcast on AXS TV and at www.farmaid.org, as well as across the Network’s various social media platforms. During the hour-long live event, each artist’s 15-minute live set will air on SiriusXM’s Dave Matthews Band Radio (Ch. 176) and Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59). Listeners can stream both channels for free on the SiriusXM app now.
