Levon Helm's Ramble At The Ryman Cancelled

See also

The legendary drummer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer Levon Helm's "Ramble At The Ryman" had become a Nashville favorite in past years and many had been looking forward with great anticipation for the next one on May 6. With sadness, it is noted that the show has been cancelled with the announcement that Levon passed away today.

His contributions to The Band, one of the most important groups of the 60's and 70's, as well as his later solo and collaborative projects, were an amazing body of work. He collaborated with many Nashville artists over the years and his album 'Ramble At The Ryman' won Best Americana Album at the 2012 Annual Grammy Awards.

The Arkansas-bred roots musical sensibility he brought to his work with The Band has had a huge influence on our community and played a large part in the development of what is now known as Americana music. His spare, supportive, and always musical drumming and mandolin playing and incredibly evocative voice will always be remembered, as will his series of "Ramble at The Ryman" shows over the past few years.

The Nashville musical community will miss you, Levon, but will always treasure the magical moments you left behind for us to enjoy. Rest In Peace, Levon - and thanks for the music!
