Daughter of The Band’s Levon Helm and singer Libby Titus, Helm resides in Woodstock, N.Y., and is currently promoting her second album release, This Too Shall Light.Her performance at C-GCC is part of a year-round tour schedule that stretches from New York to Texas, on to the United Kingdom, and back.

The tour is also the latest and the latest chapter in a long musical career – Helm began performing in the 1990s with her father’s band, The Barn Burners, and is a co-founding member of alt-country ensemble Ollabelle.

In 2004, Helm and her father created the Midnight Ramble concert series in Woodstock, which continues today, while Helm continued to lend her talents to several acts including Steely Dan, Linda Thompson, Roseanne Cash, and many others. In 2015, she released her first solo album Didn’t It Rain, which featured one of Levon Helm’s last recorded drum performances.

Tickets for the performance are $22 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased online at BrownPaperTickets.com, or may be reserved for pick-up at the college prior to the show by calling (518) 828-4181, ext. 3344.
