Benefit Announced For Levon Helm Estate
Levon Helm is missed, but not forgotten. And now a number of well-known musicians have banded together to stage the “Love For Levon” benefit concert on October 3, to raise money for his estate and legendary Midnight Ramble concert series.
The show at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey will feature such luminaries as John Mayer, Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Marc Cohn, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Eric Church, Patty Griffin, Bruce Hornsby, Mavis Staples, and Joe Walsh.
The former and founding member of The Band, Helm died in April at the age of 71 after a long fight with throat cancer.
