I returned my second year as an official Farm Aid Photographer to the 2013 Farm Aid Concert in Saratoga Springs, NY. It was an unforgettable gathering of the Farm Aid community, gathered once again in support of family farmers. The annual Farm Aid concert is a wonderful gathering of activists, musicians, and farmers and other supporters - and the money raised goes to support the local food system and the farmers that produce our food. Some of the $ raised at this event are now being distributed in California to aid some of the drought- affected farmers there (Spring 2014).
This Farm Aid concert had a surprise visit by 94-year old folk legend Pete Seeger, who led the concert crowd through an unforgettable "This Land is Your Land". Nobody know at the time that this would be one of his last performances, as Pete passed away early in 2014.
