Love for Levon

Friday, August 23 at 10:00 p.m.

This star-studded once-in-a-lifetime event celebrates the life and music of the legendary Levon Helm, who died in April 2012.

From country to rockabilly to blues to rock, the concert features performances by Gregg Allman, Mavis Staples, Joe Walsh, My Morning Jacket, Roger Waters, Dierks Bentley (pictured at right) and many others.

No one represents American music more than Levon Helm. Songs like “Life is a Carnival,” “Rag Mama Rag,” “Ophelia,” and “The Weight” tell stories of life, love, loss, and truth, ingrained in our hearts and minds by the unmistakable voice and backbeat of Levon Helm. In recent years, albums like “Dirt Farmer” and his homegrown “Midnight Rambles” reinforced the notion that Levon was both a musical treasure and a great soul.
