If you’re looking for a great musical experience close to home on Saturday night, be sure to check out Amy Helm & The Handsome Strangers in the Hudson Valley town of Irvington.

Tickets are still available for the artists who’s forging her own musical path while keeping the legacy and spirit of her father, the late Levon Helm, alive.

You may know Helm as a member of the indie supergroup Ollabelle, or as a member of her dad’s band. But now she’s out touring behind her first solo about, “Didn’t It Rain” – an excellent debut.

You can get a taste of what she’s doing from her latest video, a satisfying cover of Sam Cooke’s “Good News.”

I had a chance to speak with Amy awhile back. GO HERE to read that interview.

Then grab yourself some tickets and head to Irvington.
