- Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard!
Saugerties, NY -- (Kingston) Assemblymember Kevin Cahill (D - Ulster /
Dutchess), announced today legislation that will designate New York
State Route 375 as "Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard." The road will span
from the intersection of New York State Route 28 in West Hurley to the
intersection of New York State Route 212 in Woodstock.
"Levon Helm was a true inspiration to not only millions of fans but
our community," Cahill said. "His Rambles became a mainstay in the
town of Woodstock bringing back old soulful music worth listening to
in a welcoming venue he created."
Levon Helm Studios which was opened in 1975 brought legendary
musicians to our area including Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Emmylou
Harris, Elvis Costello, Phil Lesh, Kris Kristofferson, The Black
Crows, and many others. With his Midnight Rambles he was able to
return the music culture of Woodstock to the levels for which it was
"In a world that often compromised integrity Levon Helm cultivated the
tradition of professionalism with a deep respect for his craft and
remained refreshingly genuine throughout his life. It is with great
honor that I carry a bill that would preserve the life, career, and
music of Levon Helm."
