Biodiesel performs at Farm Aid

By | October 01, 2004
Farm Aid has added biodiesel to its all-star lineup. Willie Nelson, president of Farm Aid, welcomed its use this year saying "There's a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's called biodiesel," to the eruption of crowd cheers at the White River Amphitheatre on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation near Auburn, Wash., on Sept. 18.

The concert for family farmers is hosted by Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, who make up its board of directors. Other performers at Farm Aid included Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams and Trick Pony.

"We're really feeling good about biodiesel-it's a great thing," Neil Young said to the crowd. Young and Nelson both use biodiesel in their tour buses and personal vehicles. "Willie and I do these things all the time and we just feel good. It's clean, it's American-grown fuel, it doesn't damage anything. This is so obvious."
