Mike Gordon sat in with Amy Helm at South Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground last night. Gordon emerged during Helm’s set to play guitar on Little Feat’s “Roll Em Easy” and Peter Rowan/Bill Monroe’s “Walls of Time.” In addition, he played bass on Sam Cooke’s “(Ain’t That) Good News.” Harmonica player Mark Lavoie also joined Helm during her set. Ironically, the collaborations took place while Gordon’s former bandmates Marco Benevento and Joe Russo were performing at Levon Helm’s Woodstock, NY-area studio.
Gordon is currently working on a new studio album. He revealed his plans to check out Helm’s show via Twitter a few hours before the gig. Amy Helm will also release a solo album in the near future.
