Arkansas Sounds Presents: a Levon Helm tribute

Join us every Thursday for Arkansas Sounds Presents, a free online watch party of Arkansas music and culture.

On Thursday, May 27 at 7 p.m. CST, CALS Arkansas Sounds presents a tribute to legendary Arkansas music icon, Levon Helm! Levon Helm was a drummer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actor whose career began when he joined Ronnie Hawkins’s band just after graduating high school. Helm later went on to play with Bob Dylan and then founded The Band. A multiple Grammy Award winner and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Helm’s immense talent and impact on other musicians cannot be overstated. Our playlist celebrates the May 26th birthday of this Elaine, Arkansas native with rare performances and interviews.
