Dirk Powell Band

Multi-instrumentalist Dirk Powell is folk royalty in most mountain music circles, and his pedigree runs deep. Since learning banjo and fiddle from his grandfather, the Appalachian-born string player has shared the stage with Joan Baez, recorded and performed with Loretta Lynn, scored numerous documentaries, consulted with film directors from Ang Lee to Anthony Minghella (for 2003's Cold Mountain, in which he also acted), and organized countless bands and groups dedicated to preserving and continuing traditional American music. On the intimate stage at Dusty Springs, accompanied by members of Portland's old-time revival Foghorn Stringhorn band, the show is shaping up to be an unforgettable hootenanny. GWENDOLYN ELLIOTT
