ELECTRIC DIRT: Electric Dirt is a 4-pc. dedicated to playing the music of the late, *GREAT* drummer/singer/mandolinist/ songwriter LEVON HELM. From his ground-breaking work with The Band, to his Grammy-winning solo records, to the work he did with Bob Dylan + Neil Young among others, anything in which Levon had his hands is fair game. Electric Dirt is John Abbey (bass, vocals), Gerald Dowd (drums, vocals), Dave Nelson (guitars, vocals), and Scott Stevenson (keys, vocals). http://www.geralddowd.com/electric-dirt.html
