Review: Riverside Theatre with Jackson Browne
“But beyond some unexpected song choices, Browne’s show also greatly benefited from guest performers Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams — husband and wife, and longtime Levon Helm bandmates (Campbell produced Helm’s last three Grammy-winning albums), who opened the night with their own dynamic set of original Americana tunes.”
“During Browne’s show, Campbell played guitar for each of the show’s 20 songs with effortless bluesy flash and soulful substance — particularly in the beginning, for “The Barricades of Heaven;” and near the end of “Easy,” where he traded riffs with Greg Leisz, who supplied psychedelic ripples from his pedal steel. Williams frequently sang backing vocals, but seized the spotlight singing a duet of “My Opening Farewell” with her husband strumming mandolin behind her.”

Review: Orpheum Theatre with Jackson Browne
“Maybe by choosing Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams as his opening act – and new additional band members – he somehow hit the reboot button. Because on Tuesday at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, not only was Browne was in good spirits, but he was generous, spontaneous and even fun. And the music was darn good, too.” Click here to read the full review

Audio: Larry and Teresa on NPR’s ‘Morning Edition’
“Today’s Morning Edition music is from an interview with Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, who are out with a new album on Red House Records.
Until this album, Campbell and Williams, who are married, worked primarily as supporting musicians.
Campbell played guitar and other instruments in Bob Dylan’s band for seven years. Williams, meanwhile, sang with Emmylou Harris and others.
A turning point for them came while they were working with Levon Helm after he was diagnosed with throat cancer. Helm hosted informal concerts known as midnight rambles at his house in Woodstock, N.Y.
MPR Morning Edition producer Jim Bickal talked with Campbell and Williams about how the rambles led to the creation of their own music.”
