There are a host of concerts events that you might want to take in this summer and fall.  One of the biggest shows of the year will only take part on one day and in our backyard. Farm Aid at the Xfinity Center in Hartford.  This major concert and awareness event is happening on September 25 and should be a great day of socially conscience music and food.  The event is the brainchild of Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young.  Dave Matthews and a host of others will also be joining the long list of performers.

With the concert season in high gear in addition to Farm Aid a ton of concerts are happening within driving distance of the Berkshires.  He is an updated list of rock, pop, country and festival shows to help your summer and fall concert planning schedule...
