Dear Friends;

It's been a while since we lost Levon. It's been an emotional rollercoaster and we've encountered a mountain of challenges. Thanks to you, our friends and loyal supporters, the challenges have been easier to handle. Your kind words and messages of love and support have provided more comfort than you can ever know.

You've given us the courage and strength to follow through with Levon's wishes to keep it going, to continue his legacy and to create a musical landmark here at the barn.

More than anything, he wanted the music to continue. He wanted the barn to be host to artists from all walks of life, from all genres. He wanted children to learn from there. He wanted Rambles to continue. He didn't want a day to go by without some form of music being heard from within THESE walls.

One of the more immediate challenges is financial; the need to generate income so that we can keep Levon's legacy moving forward.

We feel it's our duty, our fulfillment of a promise to him, to do exactly what he wanted - to keep it goin'. We'd like to start the fund raising efforts by offering a t-shirt that memorializes our commitment to him as a team. Along with the t-shirt is a digital download of "Drown In My Own Tears" (live recording from May 9, 2009)that was going to appear on Volume III, The Best of the Rambles, but we've decided to remove it from that CD and offer it here as an exclusive. In addition, your name (as you indicate) will be memorialized at the studio - etched into a beautiful piece of artwork - created by artist Sheila Gilday and donated by Paul Beichert of Timely Signs of Kingston, NY - specifically for this effort.

There are actually different levels of dedication you can choose from that will provide you with a more exclusive position on the artwork. All those who donate will get their name on the appropriate pick.

The main panel of the artwork features a mosaic of picks of various size and prominence that will make up Levon's mandolin from which all the picks will flow to the Second Panel.
- The "White Pick", 1928 opportunities, requires a $125 donation.
- The "Bronze Pick", only 495 opportunities, requires a $250 donation.
- The "Silver Pick"
Sold Out!!, is our next exclusive donation level with only 60 opportunities requires a $500  donation.
- Lastly, the Premium "Gold Pick"
Sold Out!!, level will make you part of only 17 privileged people who will be represented by the largest pick that is only present on the fretboard and pickguard of the mandolin. Requires a $1500.00 donation.

This offer is our jumping-off point. It's the first in a series of efforts to continue Levon's legacy through concerts, webcasts, fundraisers, etc. He would not have wanted us to give up or let the music stop.

Please keep following us at and on Facebook for all current information, news and schedules.

And please remember, if you didn't hear it directly from one of our official Levon Helm sources it's not an officially sanctioned function of Levon Helm Studios.

Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and support. Your overwhelming commitment is what will resurrect the music at the barn.
