Dave Joins Farm Aid Board

By Brian Pace
According to the Farm Aid web site, Dave Matthews has been appointed as a member of the Farm Aid Board of Directors. This marks the first time in the 16-year history of the Farm Aid movement that they have added an artist to the original founding member group of John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson. Obviously this greatly expands the Farm Aid audience to a market that Mellencamp, Young and Nelson haven't touched in decades.
