Tribute to SREDNI 

Former harmonica player of our band and also "The Band" Sredni Vollmer passed away on Nov. 21, 2013. Affectionately known as “Shredder,” Vollmer performed with the legendary rock group from 1986-1991 following the band’s reformation following Robbie Robertson’s departure.

Along with his experience with The Band, Vollmer also contributed to Rick Danko’s first solo album as well as collaborating with Rick often, including joining Danko’s band as a harp player in the ’80s and ’90s. Vollmer performed at the Danko memorial concert following his death. Some of Sredni’s other projects include collaborations with Hot Tuna, Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Bob Dylan.

"Sredni had played with Sneaky Cooking, (as did Michael and, occasionally Randy, Brecker, Mick Ronson, Rob Stoner, Howie Wyeth, Doane Perry, Tony Caniff, Angie Howell (Barton), Jocelyn Brown, Rona Wyeth Barrow, Chrissy Faith; we played with Stuff (Cornell Dupre), Orleans, Stormin' Norman et al. He went on to play with The Band, Don Covay, Rick Danko, Otis Rush, Corky Lang, Leslie West, Danny Kalb, Dr. John, Mick Ronson, Kinky Friedman, Mississippi Fred McDowell, NRPS, Buddy Cage, Gene Clark, Paul Butterfield, Rashid Ali, Hot Tuna, Happy Traum, Andy Bobinson, and others...When I found out he still lived near Woodstock, we got together. The result is The Legendary RT and Sredni and Friends."
