Levon Helm Studios Announces New Ramble Date

Levon Helm Studios last night announced a new ramble date, set to take place on Saturday July 14. This performance will once again feature The Dirt Farmer Band—consisting of Larry Campbell, Amy Helm, Teresa Williams, Byron Isaacs, Justin Guip—as well as members of The Levon Helm Band.

This comes as the third official ramble The Barn has hosted since Helm’s passing in April of this year. The studio hosted a celebration of what would have been the drummer’s 72nd birthday in May, as well as a ramble earlier this month.

In a recent interview with Jim Weider (who replaced Robbie Robertson in the reformed version of The Band), the guitarist suggested that Phil Lesh may appear at one of the rambles at Helm’s studio next month. “I’m supposed to go out and play [one of Phil Lesh’s West Coast Rambles at Terrapin Crossroads],” Weider tells Relix. “Then he’s coming out to Levon’s in the middle of July and we’re going to do a Ramble with him.”

Tickets for the July 14 ramble are on sale now over at Levon Helm’s official website.
