September 20th is a big day in Robbie Robertson’s life.


Let’s face it,  Robbie has had many memorable days.

As Lead guitarist and  principal songwriter for the brotherhood known to all as  The Band, his esteemed  place in music history is assured.

That’s the day Sinematic,  Robbie’s 6th solo album is released.

Sinematic is followed by the general release of the documentary Once were Brothers, the story of The Band on film,  video and striking photos taken from right inside the music.

Then comes the soundtrack he wrote for The Irishman, Martin Scorcese’s  film about the mob and the last project to drop is the 50 year celebration of The band’s second album The Band which gave us The Night they drove old Dixie Down, Cripple Creek, King Harvest etc.

The brotherhood lives on.

Mulligan Stew January 7th 2017- Robbie Robertson Interview



The show is a gem..
One of the best songwriters of his generation and a pivotal member of The Band..Robbie Robertson gives tdm as many stories as he can fit into an all too brief phone call.
It all starts with Robbie’s first remark “I’m only doing this because it’s you”
Terry and Robbie haven’t talked since The Last Waltz so they had some catching up to do.
Robbie takes us through growing up on the Six Nations reserve and picking up his first guitar..
Then things start to roll as a 16 year old musician playing behind Ronnie Hawkins and assembling the members who would become The Band.

The first tour with Dylan, who needed a band with nerves of steel to “go electric”…
And the gathering of “The Canadians” at The Last Waltz in SF.
Robbie ends by telling the stories behind writing and recording three of the greatest songs ever…
The Weight
The night they drove old Dixie down
Up on Cripple Creek.

It’s a full hour with Robbie Robertson and the music of The Band and Bob Dylan.
Check out the playlist below for all the music that goes with the stories.
