Amy Helm

On this episode of Comes A Time Oteil and Mike are joined by singer-songwriter Amy Helm! Amy and the guys talk about the history of Woodstock before the festival and why she enjoys the artistic community there, the story of Levon Helm quitting Bob Dylan’s electric band to work on an oil rig in New Orleans, and the importance of being pushed off a musical cliff every once in a while. Amy also tells the guys a story about how her mettle was tested as a young musician in front of an all-star lineup, what it’s like to balance being a touring musician and a mother, Levon’s musical purity and why he wouldn’t play the games of the industry, and much more!

Amy Helm is a singer-songwriter best known for her work with Ollabelle, the New York City-based folk group. She is also the daughter of Levon Helm, one of the greatest American musicians of all time and a founding member of The Band. She has won multiple Grammys as a performer and a producer, and her impressive discography and musical resume are testaments to her intense dedication towards her craft. Amy currently tours year round with her own band and continues to perform and produce concerts at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, the home of the Midnight Ramble.
