Chris and Rich Robinson Share ‘The Weight’ with Levon Helm
Earlier this year the Black Crowes recorded two new studio projects in Levon Helms fabled Woodstock barn: Before the Frost… and Until the Freeze. Both projects were taped in front of a studio audience and will be released this September. In addition, Helm and his guitarist Larry Campbell jammed with the members of the Crowes while in the studio (it is unknown whether either of those collaborations made the final cut). Last week, The Black Crowes and the Levon Helm Band also shared the stage at both Pittsburgh, PAs Station Square and Kettering, OHs Fraze Pavilion. On both nights, Chris and Rich Robinson emerged at the end of Helms set to sing The Band classic The Weight with the drummer.
Helm will appear at Bridgeport, CTs Gathering of the Vibes this Saturday, while the Black Crowes are slated to appear at Tulsa, OKs Dfest Music Festival this Friday.
The two groups will share the stage at Bostons Bank of America Pavilion on August 27.
