Artists, Levon Helm, News, Ray LaMontagne, Tours — By on September 13, 2010 8:50 pm

The Levon Helm Band joins forces with Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs to co-headline eight select cities beginning on November 2nd in Jacksonville, FL and wrapping on November 12th in Austin, TX.

Levon Helm is an undisputed legend, having played with the likes of Ronnie Hawks, Bob Dylan, and The Band. Helm’s voice has given us classics such as Up on Cripple Creek, The Weight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. In 2007, Levon released Dirt Farmer, his first solo studio album in twenty-five years, which earned the Grammy Award® for Best Traditional Folk Album in February 2008. The critically acclaimed album awarded him a 2008 Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album and landed Helm a spot in Rolling Stone’s The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.

Ray LaMontagne is currently wrapping a tour in support of his fourth album, God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise, finishing with David Gray in Seattle on September 12th. Edging away from his solo work, he’s been playing with his new band, The Pariah Dogs. The Orange Country Register claims Ray’s voice is, “as rough, crevassed and soft as broken-in corduroy” and the Boston Herald said Ray “has an innate down-home grit and his music possesses a simmering roots-rock fire.”
