Ollabelle and then some

As noted by D-Roc below, we saw Hem perform at the World Café Live in October, and it just so happens that another terrific band, Ollabelle, opened for them with a mind-blowing set. They’re best described as of a folksy, gospel-infused, “multitalented, democratic collective” of pure rock.

Ollabelle – Reach for Love

Ollabelle – Fall Back

P.S. Amy Helm, one of the lead singers for Ollabelle, is none other than the daughter of the bourbon-voiced percussion legend Levon Helm, of The Band.

Ollabelle covered this in concert:

Bob Dylan & The Band – Ain’t No More Cane

P.P.S. Here’s another terrific cover of the same song:

John Hiatt and the North Mississippi Allstars – Ain’t No More Cane

Plus- another, unrelated cover:

Little Feat – On Your Way Down (Originally Allen Toussaint)
