Farm Aid makes its Ohio debut in Columbus

Sunday will be a great day of music at the Germain Amphitheater, a who's who in the music industry will take the stage at Polaris for Farm Aid 2003. The day-long jam session will benefit family farms in Ohio and across the nation. The list of performers includes Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Sheryl Crow. Farm Aid concerts began in 1985 but this is the first time Ohio will host the event. Proceeds from the event will pay for programs to promote family farming and locally grown produce. Farm Aid also provides emergency assistance to the owners of family farms. WOSU's Mike Thompson talked with Farm Aid's program director, Ted Quaday. Click the Listen icon to hear the interview.
