Farm Aid 2008 is almost here and the excitement is building. And so is the stage. And the Homegrown Village. There is activity everywhere and looking around, it is hard to believe that by tomorrow it will all come together in one big celebration of family farmers. But through the hard work of numerous veteran and first time volunteers, everything will be ready for a great show by the time the gates open at noon.
My name is Dave Michael and this is my 8th show volunteering at Farm Aid. I've helped out in the photo pit in past years but this year I'll be blogging to let you know all about what's happening here in Mansfield, Massachusetts. I'm filling in for Ryan Lalonde who is taking a much deserved break from blogging the show to spend some quality time with his newly arrived son Farber. Congratulations Ryan and we look forward to seeing you back next year.
If you can't be here at the show tomorrow, keep coming back for the inside scoop on the fun and be sure to watch the concert on the Farm Aid webcast or see it live in Hi-Def on DIRECTV!
