Joe Russo will join his Duo partner Marco Benevento at Levon Helm’s Woodstock, NY studios next weekend. As previously reported, Marco Benevento will take part in a Midnight Ramble on March 2. Benevento will perform with his trio—featuring Ween bassist Dave Drewitz and drummer Andy Borger—and join The Midnight Ramble Band. A post on Facebook promises that Russo will join Benevento for a portion of the night. The Lost Brothers will open the evening.
Benevento—who lives near Woodstock—joined Russo two of the times he’s performed at Helm’s studios. The longtime collaborators celebrated the music of the band during a tribute to Helm at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl in June.
