Ray LaMontagne, Levon Helm coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
Today's topic: Rootsy Americana-rock, and how it's coming to Clearwater.
Trouble-some singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne, above, and his band, the Pariah Dogs, are coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Nov. 5 with the Levon Helm Band. Yes, THAT Levon Helm, as in the drummer for The Band.
What these two lack in big-city slickness, they make up for with pure blues-country voices and Americana sensibilities. This is as rootsy and rusty as it gets. You can bet a ton of WMNF listeners will be in the audience for this one.
Tickets go onsale Friday at noon, and are priced at $39.50-$69.50. Click here.
