LEVON HELM RETURNS
TO THE RYMAN AUDITORIUM MAY 6, 2012
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY MARCH 9
Levon Helm will bring his heralded Ramble on the Road back to the historic Ryman Auditorium on Sunday May 6, 2012. Tickets are priced at $65, $55 and $45 and ARE ON SALE NOW at all Ticketmaster locations, the Ryman Box office and ryman.com.
Helm's first Ramble at the Ryman in July of 2007 marked one of the most remarkable
comebacks of our time. In 2008, the Ramble kicked off the Americana Music Festival and Conference. The recordings of that memorable evening garnered both a Regional Emmy® for its PBS Broadcast and just last month, won the Grammy® award for Best Americana Album. click here to watch Ophelia from the award winning show
Since that July night in Nashville, Levon Helm has released three Grammy award-winning albums (Dirt Farmer, Electric Dirt and Ramble at the Ryman.) Helm’s accolades also include a Lifetime Achievement Grammy for his tenure with The Band, The Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance, and he was named the Americana Artist of the Year in 2008.
Based on the traveling minstrel shows he experienced in his youth, Helm's rambles –
at his home base of Woodstock, NY and on the road – always feature a wide array of some of music’s most notable artists. The line up for this year has not yet been announced but past shows at the Ryman have included Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Sheryl Crow, John Hiatt, Buddy Miller, Sam Bush, Delbert McClinton, Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, just to name a few.
The Americana Music Association is producing this years show in loving memory of
our dear friend, Jayne Rogovin.
