Mulligan Stew September 16th 2017-Amy Helm Interview

 

Amy Helm..one writer described her music as a blend of “part juke joint, part gospel revival, part rock and part Mardi Gras show.

Her Father was Levon Helm

Her Mother was singer Libby Titus

Her Step Father is Donald Fagan.

Any wonder why she’s in the music business?

Actually, that’s where the interview starts..as I’ve discovered that children of artists usually want nothing to do with their parents’ careers.

Anything but music.

Not Amy, she jumped right in but not until after her pop Levon walked her through the history of blues, gospel, R&B and roots music.

It was the same road Levon and The Band had travelled.  Sure worked for them.

Amy’s on Salt Spring Island Saturday night

Vancouver’s Wise Hall Sunday

Then The Dream Cafe in Penticton and on to Alberta

Thursday Sept 21st  Festival Hall in Calgary

Friday  Sept 22  New Moon Folk Club  Edmonton

She’s just recorded her next album in 4 days in LA with Joe Henry. Out  early 2018

Watch for an album this month called A live celebration of Leonard Cohen

She sings  “Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye”

OH..there’s another guest on the show this week..

Allison Brock from Wide Cut Country is producing her 3rd Wide Cut Weekend in Calgary October 12-14.

Al talks about surprise performers, venues and the need for volunteers…

 

Enjoy the show !!
