Eric Church and Dierks Bentley were two of more than a dozen artists chosen to pay tribute to Levon Helm at the 'Love for Levon' concert event. The star-studded benefit concert will help support the legacy of the late musician by raising money for his estate to keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue the Midnight Ramble Sessions.
"We are deeply moved that so many musicians and friends of Levon's are coming together to celebrate his life and his music, and to help us keep his musical spirit and vision alive in the Midnight Rambles," says Sandy and Amy Helm, Helm's wife and daughter. "We want to continue to honor his legacy by creating a musical landmark at the Barn, one that inspires and celebrates Americana music and its heritage."
Other artists performing at the event include John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Gregg Allman, Patty Griffin, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams, and many more. The event will take place on October 3 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on August 29.
