We catch an Amy Helm show and it's lightning-hot


We were lucky enough to get to Irvington, N.Y., this weekend and see Amy Helm and the Handsome Strangers put on a terrific show at the Irvington Town Hall Theater.

Listeners to Birch Street Radio know we've been giving Amy's debut album, "Didn't It Rain," plenty of spins. Performed on stage with this terrific 3-piece band, powerful songs like the title track, "Heat Lightning" and "Rescue Me" swept up the packed house in a musical tornado.

Helm has put together a top-notch band: Basist Byron Isaacs, who produced her album and co-wrote many of the songs; masterful guitarist Daniel Littleton; and full-throttle drummer David Berger.

This is a show to go out of your way to catch. Find upcoming dates at amyhelm.com and explore the rest of that site to learn more.
