Dirk Powell & Riley Baugus

Event Date: 
Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

Dirk Powell combines deep-running roots in rural American tradition with an overarching artistic vision that speaks poignantly to the audiences of today. From learning banjo and fiddle at the feet of his grandfather in Kentucky, through founding the Louisiana Cajun group Balfa Toujours, to extensive recording and film work with such artists as Jack White, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Anthony Minghella, Loretta Lynn, and Spike Lee, Dirk has arrived at a place all his own - one where tradition, inspiration, and innovation meet without borders.  dirkpowell.org
 

Riley Baugus represents the best of old time American banjo and song. His powerful singing voice and his expert musicianship place him squarely in the next generation of the quality American roots tradition. Starting on the fiddle, Riley quickly moved on to the banjo, building his first instrument from scrap wood with his father. When not teaching or building banjos, Riley can be found out on the road performing. rileybaugus.com
