This August, The Weight, a band featuring former members of The Band, Levon Helm Band and Rick Danko Group, will host Camp Cripple Creek, a “Celebration of the Music and History of The Band” that will include concerts, interactive workshops, clinics, talks, open mics and more.
The camp will take place at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, on August 22-26 and will feature special guests like Jackie Greene, John Simon, producer of some of The Band’s most famous albums, Elliot Landy, music photographer who worked with The Band and recently released a photo book of his work with them, and Don LaSala, owner and historian of Big Pink, the legendary studio where The Band recorded their music. More guests are expected to be announced.
A portion of the proceeds from Camp Cripple Creek will go toward Levon’s Barn concert series. More information on the camp can be found here.
