30 Days to a Greener Diet - Day 30
Listen to the New Dirt Farmer CD
Sit Back, Relax and Reflect on Your Diet Changes
Okay, this is your day of rest and reward. So sit down to a delicious green meal, and take a listen to Levon Helm, legendary musician and drummer for The Band who has emerged from a bout with cancer with his first CD in 25 years, Dirt Farmer. What hipsters call alt country but we call traditional folk, Dirt Farmer is a collection of true grit tunes, many of which Helm heard his family sing on the back porch when he was a child in Arkansas. The title cut, "Poor Old Dirt Farmer," says all you need to know about the plight of the family farmer and the need to support them with your food dollars whenever you can.
Oh, and it won a Grammy.
