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 be offering free and discounted tickets to farmers, as well as utilizing Farm Aid’s website and social networking sites to select opening bands from each of the cities along the way.
