In Honor of Levon Helm: Watch Bon Iver Cover “Ophelia”
Bon Iver is coming to the Santa Barbara Bowl tomorrow night, and we can’t wait. In the meantime the band honored the late, great Levon Helm on Thursday night (hours after Levon passed at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco) by covering The Band’s Ophelia. Ophelia was one of Levon’s signature songs and vocal shines. Check it out below followed by Levon singing the song with The Band and with his own band.
