A special concert, complete with Cajun Gumbo cookout, to celebrate Dirk's birthday!
Dirk and Amelia Powell are a father/daughter duo from Southwest Louisiana. Dirk is well-known to Irish audiences from his performances with Transatlantic Sessions and his work with artists such as Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens, Eric Clapton, and many more. He is regarded as a champion of rural Americana, with a focus on the music of his Appalachian roots and his Cajun home, but has longstanding ties with the Celtic music world, as evidenced by his latest CD, “When I Wait For You”, which was released on Vertical Records and produced by Donald Shaw.
NOTE: We plan to CELEBRATE Dirk's birthday in some style and there will be a complimentary bowl of Dirk's recipe gumbo for all attendees in advance!
