Savannah Music Festival: Dirk Powell & Riley Baugus

Airs Thursday, January 28, at 8 p.m. Two of the foremost exponents of old-time music today are multi-instrumentalists Dirk Powell and Riley Baugus, who formed bonds with their grandparents to discover their musical roots stretching back to Scots-Irish ancestors that came to the mountains in the middle of the 18th century. These two men display a vibrant creative energy that crosses a wealth of musical boundaries while remaining grounded in the rural traditions of their heritage. In this episode, we listen to the 2015 SMF performance given by Dirk Powell & Riley Baugus at the Charles H. Morris Center.
