The Grammy Awards recently paid a tribute to Levon Helm and now SXSW will recognise his music at the Auditorium Shores in Austin on the Saturday night of SXSW.

The event will be headlined by The Midnight Ramble Band featuring Levon’s daughter Amy Helm.

Artists to perform on the day include Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Los Lonely Boys, Grey & Mofro, James Hunter, Spirit Family Reunion, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers and The Mother Hips.

Donations from the day will go towards Keep It Goin’, an initiative to continue Levon Helm’s legacy and create a musical landmark at his barn in Woodstock.

SXSW Music will be held from March 12-17 in Austin, Texas.
