Colbie Calliat at Farm Sanctuary

Colbie Calliat and Justin Young visit Farm Sanctuary.

Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter Colbie Calliat, guitarist Justin Young, and their fellow bandmates paid a visit to the New York location of Farm Sanctuary Friday, August 20. The muscians are currently on tour with Sheryl Crow, and when they learned they would be performing near Watkins Glen, NY, they took time to meet some of the rescued farm animals. Calliat and Young spent the day with the cows, sheep, pigs, birds, and goats. Originally, Young had planned on taking part in Farm Sanctuary’s 2010 Walk for Farm Animals, but had to cancel due to tour conflicts. Now, however, Young is planning a benefit concert in Hollywood to sponsor the Walk.
