The fifth anniversary of Levon Helm, the legendary drummer with The Band, will be celebrated in Dublin later this month with a special charity gig.

Each act will perform music from all stages of Levon’s career, from early act The Hawks (with Ronnie Hawkins) through to his final solo output, and the live music will be followed by a DJ set by Karl Tsigdinos.

MC on the night is Cathal Murray and all proceeds, as always, will go to the Irish Cancer Society.
