Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Levon Helm, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Miller by Ray KennedyNashville, TN -- The Americana Music Association announced today that 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 will go on sale Friday March 9 at 10 AM Central Time available 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.
