Long Live Levon Helm

The internet has been buzzing with news that founding member of The Band, Levon Helm is now in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Levon has had a long road, but his famous ‘Midnight Rambles’ at The Barn (his studio), in Woodstock, featuring the Levon Helm Band playing with guests such as Emmylou Harris, (the late) Hubert Sumlin, Elvis Costello & Gillian Welch, have not only helped pay his medical bills for the last decade, but have reinvigorated his musical career and produced three consecutive Grammy Award winning albums – Dirt Farmer, Electric Dirt and Ramble at the Ryman. So send a little love Levon’s way… his music has filled countless hearts with joy.
