Amy Helm has deep musical roots. As the daughter of music legend Levon Helm, she grew up surrounded by musical creativity and spent many years singing and playing alongside her father, absorbing the influences of artists like Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, Joan Osborne, Dr. John and Hubert Sumlin. As a member of rootsy band Ollabelle, the Levon Helm and Dirt Farmer bands - she honed her soul inflected vocal delivery and mandolin playing. As co-producer of Levon Helm's Dirt Farmer record, she shared in the Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album.
Helm performs at Roots Music in the Music Room with her new band - the Amy Helm Band - backed by an acoustic powerhouse featuring Byron Isaacs and Justin Guip (of the Levon Helm Band) and extraordinary guitarist Dan Littelton. With strains of folk, gospel, blues and R&B, the music is uplifting and moving. Please join us for this special show. Seating is limited to 200.
