Episode 172: A sense of place pervades this split show featuring two of the most fascinating and accomplished voices in Americana music. Amy Helm is a veteran singer but a relatively new solo recording artist having released her third LP 'What The Flood Leaves Behind.' We talk about the aura and sound of her late father Levon Helm's Barn and how she keeps discovering new things there. Rachel Baiman came to Nashville from Chicago for college and made a name as a fiddler in the duo 10 String Symphony. Her solo albums are crystalizing a new indie roots sound with great songwriting. We talk at her home, a charming cabin thrust over the Cumberland River in Madison TN. Her new album is 'Cycles.'
