Levon Helm is one of my all-time heroes – drummer, mandolinist, songwriter, sanger, southern gentleman (Arkansasan), cancer (throat) survivor, actor, friend of Canada and a Grammy winner for his folk album Dirt Farmer. Here’s a little featurette of Levon playing music and talking about the state of the USA for farmers, country folk, and civilians everywhere. “I can’t say, i’m just having a soda.”
