Review: Amy Helm & Andrew Combs, Celtic Connections 2019

Amy Helm has a rich musical heritage, as she was brought up with Levon Helm as her father, the prolific drummer from The Band. American roots music has always been in her blood so, were we entirely surprised by her set? Well no, as she took Americana, gospel, blues and country and transformed them for the stage in Glasgow's Oran Mor as part of Celtic Connections 2019. Promoting This Too Shall Light, Amy brought an all-rounded 'circular sound' to her fans, which received a vibrant reception.

Alex and Christine and Zachary and Lydia have been friends since their twenties. Now in their fifties they are still emotionally tied to one another, their friendship relying on each other playing their part. When Zachary dies a sudden and untimely death, the three remaining friends find themselves struggling with both the loss of the funny, grounding Zachary but also the changing dynamic he leaves behind.
