Quick Hits: Levon Helm Performs "The Weight"
Clip: Season 1 | 6m 54s
Levon Helm - drummer and lead singer for The Band - presides over what he calls “midnight rambles” – concerts in his Woodstock, N.Y. barn, where he’s surrounded by musical friends and family, including his daughter, singer Amy Helm. His voice may be raspy, but his energetic drumming and high-beam smile can warm the coldest winter night. Part of the Sound Tracks: Quick Hits series by PBS Arts.
