The show which is being held in The Sugar Club will see all proceeds go to The Irish Cancer Society.

The exceptional legacy of Levon Helm, drummer and vocalist with the legendary Americana act The Band, will be celebrated by a cast of stellar musicians. Levon’s work with the seminal outfit includes the classic albums Music From Big Pink, The Band and the era-defining long-player and concert film The Last Waltz.
