Described as ‘a treat to the auditory senses’, Helm & the All Star Band hail from Cornwall. Their sound is a lush blanket of harmonies, draped over a twisting landscape of stories. The songs tell tales of Helm’s life and travels. Mix in some sweet country slide guitar plus a group of fine musicians and the end result is a collection of heartfelt songs that take you on a journey through the eyes of the author.
Under the influence of folk, blues and country music, the band comes in many guises. The very nature of the All Star lineup is transient. The outfit itself is more like a collective of talented local musicians who offer their time up whenever they are available. This makes the sound fresh and ever-evolving whilst maintaining the original roots and themes of Helm’s original concept. It also makes each show more unique and worthy of a listen.
