Yesterday, the Levon Helm Studios hosted a rare Sunday Ramble. Joining the Levon Helm Band in Woodstock was a packed line-up that also yielded sets from Kris Kristofferson, Hubert Sumlin with Steve Conte, Carolyn Wonderland, Waylon Payne, Guy Forsyth and the Jarrett Schaub Band. The evening culminated, as it often does in this setting, with a sing-along. Helm welcomed all of the participating musicians to the stage for a version of “The Weight.”

Next up for Helm will be an Acoustic Ramble this Friday, November 20. For a bit more on Helm Band guitarist Jim Weider, check out Brian Robbins’ interview, which just posted to the site.
