Keep It Goin’: Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles Continue His Legacy
Story by Bokonon
To that end, the Studios have initiated a fundraising program that will allow Midnight Rambles to continue apace at the historic barn on Plochmann Lane.
Those who’ve attended a Ramble know that few experiences match the incredible music and camaraderie that goes on within those walls. Even with Levon gone, his bandmates and their special guests will keep his memory alive and keep the barn rockin’.
“You’ve given us the courage and strength to follow through with Levon’s wishes to keep it going,” a statement on the website reads, “to continue his legacy and to create a musical landmark here at the barn.”
The Studios are inviting fans to become a part of the fundraising effort, and there are a number of rewards for different levels of giving, including an exclusive MP3 track of “Drown in My Own Tears” (recorded live at the barn in 2009), a “Keep It Goin’” T-shirt and, most importantly, representation on a memorial artwork created by artist Sheila Gilday and donated by Paul Beichert of Timely Signs of Kingston.
