At Farm Aid, The Seeds of Revolution

farm-aid2016

Let it be said here that this was the day when we may look back on when the revolution was declared. Or as Neil Young said on the morning of Saturday, September 17, “The Better Food Revolution.”

Young appeared at his 31st Farm Aid like he was Mayor of the Earth, the planet’s five letters all in uppercase emblazoned EARTH on his black t-shirt. Young was decrying big agriculture for selling food that’s been degraded, taking a shot at Barack Obama. “Even your president supports it.”

Andrea Zonn & The Friends She’s Made Along The Way: The Buddy & Jim Show Recap

Trace Adkins & Andrea Zonn singing “Ships”

Andrea Zonn remembers the first time she met Alison Krauss. She was ten and Alison was eight and the two were introduced at the Champaign Festival in Illinois. Growing up, the two tried to pick apart Emmylou Harris and Little River Band records during the Seventies.

“We’ve gotten in a lot of trouble over the years,” Zonn said with a sly laugh during her visit to the Buddy & Jim Show on Sirius XM Outlaw Country. On a day when Miller was recovering from a lack of sleep following a trip to San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Zonn came in to play songs from her new album Rise. It was released in late September on the independent label Compass Records which is owned and operated by Alison Brown and her husband. Zonn was accompanied on the show by guitarist and collaborator Tom Jutz.
