Levon Helm spent his life making music and for nearly the past decade the Midnight Ramble was his musical home. These intimate ‘concerts’ are held on most Saturday nights at Helm’s ‘Barn’ in Woodstock, NY where litanies of guest artists gather to pay homage to a music Icon.
At long last, on July 1st, Vanguard Records/Levon Helm Studios will release The Levon Helm Band – The Midnight Ramble Sessions Volume 3. This collection features select Ramble performances circa 2005 to 2010 with such guest artists as Chris Robinson, Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint with The Levon Helm Band: Levon Helm, Larry Campbell, Jimmy Vivino, Mike Merritt, Jimmy Weider, Amy Helm, Teresa Williams, Jay Collins, Erik Lawrence, Clark Gayton, Brian Mitchell, Steven Bernstein, Howard Johnson and Byron Isaacs.
With each track hand-picked by Helm who also designed the cover art, The Midnight Ramble Sessions Volume 3 continues to solidify Helm’s legacy as a revered musical force.
