Singer and multi-instrumentalist Amy Helm makes her SMF debut on closing weekend with her ace band. The daughter of Levon Helm of The Band and singer-songwriter Libby Titus, Amy Helm was a member of her father’s band in the 90s and 2000s, was a founding member of acclaimed roots-rock ensemble Ollabelle, and has released three solo albums over the last decade. She also organizes the annual Dirt Farmer music festival and curates the storied Midnight Ramble monthly series at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY. Her rich, emotive voice is at home in music across the American roots spectrum, from R&B to folk and country to gospel, and her live performances are always buzzed about.
“Where Ms. Helm truly excels… is in the mining of emotional subtleties within a song.”
