The Levon Helm Band

 

continued

Helm started his Midnight Ramblings at his barn in Woodstock, New York, in order to raise funds to pay for medical treatment following throat cancer. Initially, he was unable to sing, but his voice recovered, though it changed--diminished but still powerful, it's now the conductor rather than the train.

I expect Helm and his Midnight Ramblers will play many tunes by The Band when they play the Michigan Theater on March 19, but I especially look forward to hearing Buddy Miller's "Wide River to Cross," a song that has been included on many of Helm's recent albums, and which I think is a perfect representation of the Midnight Ramble: "I cannot look back now, come too far to turn around...I've got to journey on, to where I'll find the things that I have lost."

I hope to see you at the show. It'll be a good one and an opportunity for us to be a community and really get down.    (end of article)
