Dirk & Amelia Powell


doors 7.30 pm - 10.30 pm


Dirk and Amelia Powell are a father/daughter duo from Southwest Louisiana. Dirk is well-known to Scottish audiences from his performances with Transatlantic Sessions and his work with artists such as Joan Baez, Jack White, 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. His latest CD, “When I Wait For You", was released on Vertical Records and produced by Donald Shaw.
Dirk’s daughter Amelia grew up in the bayous of Louisiana, immersed in the musical culture of her grandfather, Cajun fiddle hero Dewey Balfa. Her driving guitar and soulful vocals, as both a lead and harmony singer, are in demand throughout Cajun country and beyond. She has toured internationally since her teenage years.
Together, they perform music of their heritage, write and craft original songs, and bring audiences the kind of soulful connection that comes from family playing together with trust, humour, and love.
