Amy Helm to Headline 2016 Roots & Rhythm
(Honesdale, April 11, 2016)…Amy Helm, often described as an exceptionally soulful singer/songwriter and a member of the so-called Woodstock tribe of musicians in nearby New York state, will headline the 11th annual Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival on June 18th.
Helm, who has been a musician in her own right all her life, is the daughter of musical legends: singer/songwriter Libby Titus (she wrote “Love Has No Pride”) and the late musical icon Levon Helm, drummer/vocalist for The Band (“The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “Up on Cripple Creek,” “The Weight”). After decades of playing with bands such as the altcountry Ollabelle and with her father, Helm put out her first solo album, “Didn’t It Rain,” in July of last year.
