Ray LaMontagne Moves Me

I’ve mentioned before how much I love Ray LaMontagne and how I would beg, steal or borrow to see him in concert since I missed his last tour through Tampa.  Friday night, I was fortunate enough to be given another chance to see Ray along with living legend Levon Helm and The Band for their co-headlining tour.





Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs were amazing live, but I prefer him best acoustic with just a steel string guitar and his soulful voice.  Allan was very embarrassed by my attempt to record Ray.  I was too embarrassed to record more than one song, but I found a video of Ray singing Like Rock & Roll and the Radio.  This song gives me goosebumps.  His pain in this song sounds so genuine.



Since Ray co-headlined with Levon Helms, Allan and I hoped they would perform The Weight, like they did on Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… and much to our pleasure, they did.



Ray had me tapping along and swaying in my seat and Ruth Eckerd Hall was a perfect venue for his blues/bluegrass infusion.  He truly moves me.
