Produced with the support of the Helm Family and Levon Helm Productions, the show celebrating the life and music of Helm takes place Oct. 3 in East Rutherford, N.J., at the IZOD Center. The drummer/vocalist/songwriter/producer and actor died in April of throat cancer at age 71.
Hudson will appear along with Sister Maud Hudson. The other new acts are instrumentalist and singer/songwriter David Bromberg, country/folk singer John Prine and Grace Potter of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
The previously announced lineup features Lucinda Williams, Gregg Allman, My Morning Jacket, John Mayer, Ray LaMontagne, Dierks Bentley, Marc Cohn, Patty Griffin, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Jorma Kaukonen, The Levon Helm Band, Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples and Joe Walsh.
Larry Campbell, who was Levon’s musical director during the last several years of his life, is leading an all-star band along with co-musical director Don Was.
Net proceeds from the event will help Helm’s estate continue the Midnight Ramble Sessions and keep ownership of his home, barn and studio.
Tickets are on sale now.
