Levon Helm's former home and recording studio have been sustained in his honor in Saugerties, New York. Supporters of a move to resore and preserve his childhood home in Marvell, Arkansas hope to find enough interest among area residents and far-flung fans of The Band drummer to be able to have a lasting tribute to him in the Arkansas Delta town he spent his early years in, as well. A concert Saturday (10/25) dubbed the Levon Helm Down Home Jubilee will raise funds to apply to the cause. Among those in attendance will be Anna Lee, the Annie Helm referenced in the chorus of The Weight.
