Music Monday features #Canadian with The Band

This past week I posted a picture of myself wearing vinyl – vinyl albums that is. It was done to highlight my Canadian style for the Dare to Wear Love Challenge. You can hit the link and see the picture. I also wrote about the fundraiser in a recent post

I’d like to feature the artists from those albums over the next weeks.

First up is Robbie Robertson. He was in a band simply called “The Band.”

Its original members consisted of Canadians Rick Danko (bass, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards), Richard Manuel (piano, vocals), Robbie Robertson (guitar), and American, Levon Helm (drums, vocals).

In the film The Last Waltz, advertised as The Band’s “farewell concert, the band was joined by Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Joni Mitchell, and many others. It’s a terrific concert movie directed by Martin Scorsese and definitely worth watching.

In this video, The Band performs their classic “The Weight” with the Staple Singers.

I hope you enjoy it, and have a wonderful week,

eden

  2. That’s a nice song. There’s one Robbie Robertson song I really like – Showdown at Big Sky.
