TheArtsAt311 is proud to host Ain’t in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm” directed by Jacob Hatley. Mark Lavon “Levon” Helm, drummer for The Band, was born in Elaine, Arkansas and grew up in Turkey Scratch. His voice,one of the most distinctive in rock and roll, was silenced by treatment for laryngeal cancer in the late 1990s. The film documents the making of his first studio album in 25 years, the Grammy award-winning Dirt Farmer, and the subsequent resurgence in his career that continued until he succumbed to his illness on April 19, 2012. Levon went on to receive two more Grammys for the albums Electric Dirt and Ramble at the Ryman.
His performance space and recording studio in Woodstock, New York, The Barn, was home to The Midnight Ramble and an inspiration for TheArtsAt311, a charitable organization that promotes the arts of Northeast Arkansas and the surrounding region. It is located at 311 S. Church St. in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The film premiered in Arkansas at TheArtsAt311 on May 15. Screenings continue on May 24, 25, and 27 at 8pm and on May 26 at 2pm. Doors open at 7pm. Seating is limited. Tickets are $10. More information can be found at TheArtsAt311.com and facebook.com/TheArtsAt311.
The film is highly recommended for all fans of Levon Helm, the Band and anyone who is interested in learning about the incredible influence that Mr. Helm’s Arkansas heritage had over American music.
