FARM AID CO-FOUNDER JOHN MELLENCAMP TO JOIN FARMERS IN D.C. MARCH 7 IN SUPPORT OF CLIMATE RESILIENCE | National And World News

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Farm Aid announced today that co-founder and board member John Mellencamp will join farmers, ranchers and farmworkers from across the country at the Rally for Resilience: Farmers for Climate Action in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, March 7. As Congress begins work on the 2023 Farm Bill, farmers across the country have a message for lawmakers: make climate change a policy priority.

Mellencamp will offer remarks and perform at the rally, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. ET at Freedom Plaza, where farmers will share personal stories of how the climate crisis affects their livelihoods and communities. They also will speak about their sustainable agricultural practices, which can help to mitigate climate change, including organic production, cover crops and rotational grazing. Speakers also will urge Congress to include critical support for Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) producers in the upcoming Farm Bill.

“As a Farm Aid board member, I’ve been to Washington a few times to ask for farmer voices to be heard. I hope on March 7, members of Congress hear farmers and ranchers loud and clear,” said Mellencamp. “If we want a better world, it starts with us. Farmers know this. They have the tools and know-how to better our climate future, but they can’t do it alone. Policymakers — and all of us — need to support the solutions they can deliver.”

The March 7 Rally for Resilience is part of a three-day gathering beginning Monday, March 6, including the rally, cultural events, a demonstration of climate-friendly farming practices, and meetings of farmers, ranchers and farmworkers with their elected representatives. The gathering is organized by the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), Farm Aid, HEAL (Health, Environment, Agriculture, Labor) Food Alliance, Kiss the Ground, Food Animal Concerns Trust, and Family Farm Defenders, along with an alliance of food and farm organizations.

The event was first announced on the Farm Aid 2022 festival stage in Raleigh, North Carolina. Mellencamp’s immediate response was to declare, “I’m going to come to Washington, D.C.”

For more information about the Rally for Resilience, visit sustainableagriculture.net/farmers-for-climate-action-rally-for-resilience. For more information about Farm Aid, visit farmaid.org.

Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. For more than 35 years, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $70 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.

Artist Andrew Hagar Drops Beats for Mental Wellness

Before the pandemic, Berklee Online music school reported in 2019 findings of a web survey conducted by Swedish digital music distribution platform Record Union, and 73% of the 1,500 independent musicians who responded had experienced negative mental health issues, particularly anxiety and depression. Covid led to worse outcomes, as cancelled live performances and the resulting loss of income caused nine in ten musicians surveyed by UK independent charity Help Musicians in 2021 to report their mental health deteriorating since the pandemic began.

The music industry is moving to change the dispiriting narrative. At this year’s South by Southwest film festival, a Mental Health in the Music Industry panel will address the causes and possible solutions to leading mental health issues facing the music industry, including substance abuse culture, high rates of depression and anxiety, and the physical and mental toll of touring.

Musicians are also addressing current mental wellness themes in their music. American Singer and Songwriter Andrew Hagar is amplifying mental health awareness with his new project dubbed “The Midnight Suns” that is a culmination of artistic experimentation during the past few years. In advance of a debut EP, titled Limited Edition Psycho, dropping later this year, he is releasing a new single, “Leave It Alone” and a bonus track, “If Ya Wanna,” both which play into various mental health topics.

“I came up with the idea of ‘The Midnight Suns’ because the midnight sun is the star that shines the brightest in the darkness, and all of these songs came out of a really dark time, a really dark place,” Hagar says. “It all ties into the theme of overcoming some mental health issues that plagued everyone over the past few years.”

Hagar, the son of rockstar Sammy Hagar (known as Red Rocker of the 1970s hard rock band Montrose), was born into music. He describes his music as a nod to the rock influences of Alice In Chains, Nine Inch Nails and Stone Temple Pilots mixed with classic folk. Teaming up with artist Trev Lukather as producer and co-writer of his new album, Hagar, describes the tracks as eloquent lyricism paired with grunge-inflected grooves.

“If You Wanna” is an uplifting song about overcoming the spiraling and reclaiming agency over your own mind. Most people, Hagar says, have been through bouts of self doubt, punctuated with negative self talk, imposter syndrome and depressive feelings of inadequacy.

Since the early days of the pandemic, Hagar says that he felt curious minded people were grasping for straws, looking for answers to the chaos and unrest unfolding around the world. Many, he says, strayed too deep in their search for answers, and never really returned to their previous states of mind. In that sense, “Leave It Alone” is about the darker side of mental health as well as dangers of misinformation, obsessing over the search for truth and the idea that “you can’t put the toothpaste back in the proverbial tube.”

“This song (”Leave It Alone”) pokes fun at the internal dialog of someone trying to change their own mind about themself,” Hagar says. “Greatly inspired by my own use of meditative mantras and affirmations to turn off the hyper critical self-analysis, it was also heavily inspired by an Alan Watts quote that kept popping into my brain during the writing process: ‘the mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.’ So I set out to master my mind before it mastered me, and anyone can do it if they just make a conscious decision to take control of their own thoughts.”

Producer and songwriter Trev Lukather says that his highest of highs and lowest of lows always lead him to a music studio, and he owes his sanity to songwriting. He considers working with Hagar “a mental cleansing experience” for both parties who were both facing a challenging time.

The duo leaned on each other, laughed a ton and placed all of their emotions into their work. Putting pieces of yourself out there into the world only to be judged is the other side of mental struggle as a songwriter, explains Lukatther. For him, the process relieves pain but also opens the door to more pain.

“It lifted a ton of weight off of our spiritual shoulders … Drew had a lot to say, I had a lot to say … I can remember those feelings while listening back. I’m a stronger person today because of those songs, we are all very vulnerable,” says Lukatther. “But, after it’s all said and done, we have to shed our skin only to build tougher skin. It’s an experience and feeling I wouldn’t give up for the world.”

More Ed SheeranMore Ed Sheeran

It’s official: Ed Sheeran has broken the record for the number of tickets sold for a concert at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). 

For Friday’s show at the MCG, Sheeran has sold a mind-boggling number of over 107,000 tickets. His Thursday show, also at the G, has sold over 100,000 tickets, with both gigs breaking records. Final tickets are available for the Thursday, 2 March concert.

“Ed loves to break a record, and he’s smashed this one,” Matt Gudinski, CEO of Mushroom Group said. “It’s phenomenal that more than 200,000 people will see this amazing show at our iconic MCG. Melbourne is set for two incredibly special nights with one of the greatest performers ever.”

Last night, Ed and Matt made their way to the Michael Gudinski statue outside Rod Laver Arena, with Sheeran posting on Instagram this morning, “Toasting a [Penfolds] 707 [Michael Gudinski’s favourite wine] to the big man ahead of playing the biggest ticketed shows ever in Australian history this weekend. We miss you, you finally got me playing MCG in the round”. It was Michael who said Ed should perform “in the round, at the MCG.”

“Oh man, I was a little bit nervous [when receiving the news about opening for Ed Sheeran],” he said. “This is like the biggest tour to ever come to Australia in history – it’s over a million tickets.” And, of course, he still hasn’t gotten over featuring on a remix of Sheeran’s 2Step. “I was already in shock that I got to do the song with him. So I was like, I guess this is the next thing. I’m still in the same state when I heard the news. It doesn’t make sense to me. Why me? I don’t know. But I’m really grateful.”

On Michael Gudinski, Budjerah shared, “I never got to know the man but to see how he cared for me and Australian music in the short time that I got to know him, that really changed my perception on the Australian music industry in general and the whole entire industry and what it’s really about.”

The Thursday Ed Sheeran show is selling final tickets, with the Adelaide and Perth legs also selling fast. You can purchase tickets here.

Ludmilla-cr-Ygor-Marques-press-2022-billboard-1548.jpg

Latin Artist on the Rise – Billboard

When Ludmilla stepped onstage to headline Palco Sunset at Rock in Rio in September 2022 — an all-star lineup boasting the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Guns N’ Roses, and Dua Lipa — the Rainha da Favela boldly announced her arrival. Donning a black lace one-piece and a fur cropped coat, her long black shiny hair looking splendidly, the Rio de Janeiro native oozed confidence, and proceeded to belt out the words to baile funk banger “Favela Chegou” (or Favela has arrived), a single from her 2019 full-length Hello Mundo.

Rock in Rio is one of the world’s largest music festivals, drawing in roughly 700K attendees annually, and the performer had hordes of fans losing their minds over her captivating vocal range and powerful stage presence — and, to keep it real, her twerking dexterity. In March, she will appear in Lollapalooza Brasil, the same month that her next album drops. Her prior studio release, Numanice #2 (2022), garnered the singer her first Latin Grammy for best samba/pagode album.

Ludmila Oliveira da Silva was born to sing. It’s something that comes “from inside my soul,” she tells Billboard Español over Zoom. The artist had just returned home to Rio from a business trip to Argentina. She mentions proudly that she writes most of her songs, and began to do so at an early age. Her inspiration? Seeing The Beyoncé Experience Live (2007) on DVD, a game-changer for the pre adolescent. “I saw her so free on stage, so happy, so confident, and I wanted to do that too,” she recalls. “That’s how I found myself in music.”

For a short stint in her early career, Ludmilla dubbed herself MC Beyoncé, and released her breakout hit “Fala Mal de Mim” (2013) under that stage name —  a viral YouTube release that clocked in at 15 million views at the time. While Queen Bey has been her number one idol, she also takes cues from SZA, Kehlani, and Rihanna. “They caused all this, you know?” she muses. “I really wanted to externalize these things that I feel inside me.”

Although Ludmilla’s admiration for American neo-soul, pop and R&B have helped fuel her creative wanderlust, her love for homegrown sounds is unparalleled. She built her artistic persona embracing Brazilian art forms, from samba to pagode and funk carioca, with an enigmatic flow that’s all in Portuguese where she reps life in the favelas, self empowerment anthems, and rendezvous encounters. She’s a household name in her native country, who’s widely recognized as the Rainha da Favela (or Queen of the Favela).

“I come from the favela here in Rio de Janeiro, where funk is a very strong genre. It’s a musical genre that saves lives,” she asserts. “In these communities, you have a lot of connections with funk and Black music.” Favelas have become synonymous with the slums, and although poverty and crime abound, music and culture are potent agents of change (think the roots of hip-hop in the Bronx). 

“I started singing and began appearing in the media through funk. I saw that my musical range was wide, that I could do everything I dreamed of, everything I wanted to do. So I started to invest more in this, and now I am at this moment,” she says. 

Ludmilla signed with Warner Music Brasil, released her debut 2014 album Hoje and followed up with 2016’s A Danada Sou Eu. By the time of 2019’s Hello Mundo, her star ascended higher: She made Brazil’s Top 50 on Spotify, toured Europe, and appeared in a 2019 single (MC Lan, Skrillex and TroyBoi’s “Malokera”) that starred in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty fashion show. In 2020, she became the first Afro-Latina artist to reach one billion streams on Spotify. 

Last month, the rising Brazilian signed a high-profile management deal with WK Entertainment/Central Sonora. “Ludmilla reflects the true sonority that exists in Brazil today. She is ready to conquer the world by exploring our Brazilian culture,” Cesar Figueiredo previously said in a statement shared with Billboard Español. “Our alliance began a few years ago as a friendship and has since blossomed, giving us the opportunity to finally work together professionally. It is truly an honor for me as a manager to represent a highly regarded and iconic artist such as Ludmilla.” This month, she dropped the energetic singles “Sou Má,” featuring Tasha & Tracie and Ajaxx, as well as “Naci Pra Vencer” with Dallass.

With a highly versatile ability to create riveting pop that spans Latin trap, funk, soul and more, coupled with her alluring stage presence, Ludmilla is poised for her Stateside breakthrough. 

Name: Ludmila Oliveira da Silva 

Age: 27

Recommended Song: “I would recommend ‘Rainha da Favela’ because it describes who I am as a person, where I come from, and what I’m about. It’s about me, and it encapsulates the image I want to deliver.”

Biggest achievement: “First my fans, and second is that now I have the power to control my own career because people want to hear what I have to say. I now have full artistic control in my own market and a management team that’s helping me on this path. “

What’s Next: The public can expect lots of different things, like private shows, called Lud Sessions, which have become pretty notorious. Lots of collabs with people from Brazil and beyond, and a new album due in March.

“Bridge, Brahms and Beyond” at Jamestown Arts Center presented by Kingston Chamber Music Festival

Two award-winning classical musicians will present a seldom-performed repertoire for viola and piano in “Bridge, Brahms and Beyond” presented by the Kingston Chamber Music Festival on Friday, March 17, 7-9pm at the Jamestown Arts Center.

Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt and Natalie Zhu will perform a “kaleidoscope of sound” through dynamic pieces curated to highlight the unique viola sound: Brahms Sonata in F minor, Two Pieces by Frank Bridge, Morpheus by Rebecca Clarke and selections from the beloved Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev (a rarely played piece which reimagines Shakespeare’s masterpiece from a composer’s perspective). 

Beth Etter, executive director of the Kingston Chamber Music Festival offers, “Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt is one of the most distinguished violists of her generation. She and Natalie Zhu met through last year’s KCMF’s summer performances. Inspired to collaborate, they will share a stage for the first time to deliver a rarely performed repertoire. Based on the positive initial audience reaction, we anticipate a sold out show.”

“The range of the viola is on average the most similar to the human voice. I love how soulful the timbre is,” Pajaro-van de Stadt states. 

Zhu adds, “So rich and warm, it’s a sound you cannot find with other instruments.”

“There’s nothing like listening to beautiful music while surrounded by beautiful art,” states Maureen Coleman, the Jamestown Arts Center’s executive director. “The Jamestown Arts Center’s high-ceilinged, spacious art gallery adds to the artful experience – classical music sounds incredible in the space!”

Both musicians are graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music. Pajaro-van de Stadt was the founding violist of the award-winning Dover Quartet from 2008-2022. Her Wigmore Hall recital was hailed as being “fleet and energetic…powerful and focused” by Strad Magazine. In addition to appearances as soloist with the Tokyo Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, and Sphinx Chamber Orchestra, she has performed throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe and Asia. Zhu is the recipient of numerous awards, and has performed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician. The Philadelphia Inquirer described her playing as “deeply emotional and pianistic pyrotechnics.” She is known for captivating interpretations of a wide repertoire and has served as the artistic director of KCMF since 2009. 

The Kingston Chamber Music Festival will celebrate its 35th season next summer. The two-week Festival brings renowned musicians together with young, rising artists to perform six concerts in the Fine Arts Center Concert Hall at the University of Rhode Island. The Kingston Chamber Music Festival also presents special concerts and events in varied settings throughout the year.

Tickets are $35 general admission and available here. JAC facilities are accessible.

Who knew? Dave Grohl shows some amazing skills for 16 hours straight to help the homeless

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Dave Grohl demonstrated why he is a true rockstar as he recently visited a homeless center in Los Angeles to help out. The 54-year-old musician reportedly went to The Hope Mission in Los Angeles and cooked for 500 people in total, including 450 homeless. It has been said that he reached the place around midnight last Wednesday, February 22, while carrying some overnight gear and a huge meat smoker.

TMZ reported that the founder of the rock band Foo Fighters worked for 16 hours while making brisket, ribs, beans, pork butt, cabbage, and coleslaw. The publication also noted that the cost of the barbeque feast was borne by Grohl. The star also reportedly took some rest in the parking space during the grueling hours.

Chris Moyles‘ inadvertent album announcement

This comes as Radio X DJ Chris Moyles inadvertently announced some news regarding Foo Fighters’ next album earlier this month, causing a lot of commotion. After playing the band’s single ‘Walk’, he reportedly said, “I love that song so much – Foo Fighters, and ‘Walk’. They’ve got a new album coming out in, er, March, Foo Fighters… which I’m very much looking forward to.”

But after realizing his mistake, Moyles explained, “I’ve caused a bit of a kerfuffle. I’m in a very uncomfortable cul-de-sac and I don’t really know what to do. I’ve made the website of another radio station!”

He also stated, “I don’t know what to say without getting in trouble, I don’t know what to say without people going, ‘what?’, I don’t know what to say without looking stupid…I don’t know what people want me to say. I think people want me to say, ‘yes, I can’t say anything else, I can’t say anymore but yes, I’m telling you there is a new album coming out in March this year.’ I’m not going to say any of that,” before adding, “Look, all I will say is this. I can’t say anymore…anyway, sorry Dave. I’m really sorry Dave.”

‘A continuation of life’

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters decided to continue their work after their bandmate Taylor Hawkins’ death in March last year. “Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. For the past 27 years, our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together,” they said in a statement at the time.

“A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward,” it added.
