When Dirk Powell and Riley Baugus perform at the Rosendale Café on Saturday, February 1, two great Louisiana talents join forces to explore the crosscurrents of three great Americana musical tributaries: those of Cajun, Creole and old-time Appalachian traditions. In addition to his own releases on the Rounder label, Dirk Powell has recorded and performed with artists such as Loretta Lynn, Sting, Jack White, Levon Helm, Jewel, T-Bone Burnett and more. Banjoist Baugus is a master of American roots music. He achieved the most exposure of his career when he sang a capella for the 2003 Civil War film Cold Mountain.
The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20. The Rosendale Café is located at 434 Main Street in Rosendale. For more information, call (845) 658-9048 or visit www.rosendalecafe.com.
