Levon Helm - Ramble At The Ryman PBS Special To Air August 2009
On most Saturday nights since January 2004, Levon Helm has hosted evenings of music at the "barn," his home studio in Woodstock, New York. These magical nights are called The Midnight Ramble Sessions. On September 17, 2008, Helm took the Midnight Ramble on the road to one of America's treasured venues, Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, where — accompanied by such luminaries as Buddy Miller, John Hiatt, Sheryl Crow and Sam Bush — the Levon Helm Band gave birth to a night of stage magic. Captured in pristine high definition Levon Helm - Ramble at the Ryman is part of special programming airing on PBS in August 2009.
The performance is a veritable tour through the American songbook, featuring tunes from Helm's tenure with The Band, as well as selections from the 2008 Grammy winning Dirt Farmer and classics from artists such as Chuck Berry, The Carter Family and more.
