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”
