Celebrating the Life and Music of Levon Helm

A benefit concert celebrating the life and music of Levon Helm, former drummer for The Band, will take place on October 3, 2012 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ.  The concert boasts a star studded lineup including Warren Haynes, Joe Walsh, Bruce Hornsby, Gregg Allman, John Mayer, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Dierks Bentley, and more.

The proceeds from the concert will help support Helm’s estate to keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions.

“We are deeply moved that so many musicians and friends of Levon’s are coming together to celebrate his life and his music, and to help us keep his musical spirit and vision alive in the Midnight Rambles,” said Sandy and Amy Helm, Levon’s wife and daughter. “We want to continue to honor his legacy by creating a musical landmark at the Barn, one that inspires and celebrates Americana music and its heritage.”

Levon Helm passed away on April 19, 2012 after a long battle with throat cancer.

Tickets for the concert go on sale August 29th.
