Love for Levon : An Extended PBS Preview
A concert film of last October’s stellar Love For Levon show will be released on DVD, CD and Blu-Ray on March 19. An all-star lineup of musicians including Roger Waters, John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Gregg Allman, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes, Jorma Kaukonen, Garth Hudson, Joe Walsh, Mavis Staples, Robert Randolph and more came together to pay tribute to legendary drummer Levon Helm. The fantastic two set show, which featured plenty of interesting collaborations and covers of The Band classics, took place with the purpose of raising money for Helm’s upstate New York studio.
In addition, most PBS stations will air the concert next month. Here is an extended preview of the film, courtesy of PBS.
