The Great Big Fais Do Do: Dirk Powell and the Stumptown Aces, Cactus Blossoms

[CAJUN DANCE HALL] Veteran Portland roots musician Caleb Klauder's three-day Great Big Fais Do Do—a Cajun term that translates roughly as "go night night" but really means, in essence, "family dance house party"…with gumbo of course—opens with the longtime Louisiana-based fiddler, banjo master, pianist and singer Dirk Powell. Growing up in Kentucky, Powell learned Appalachian music from his grandfather, then imbibed the equally rich Creole/Cajun traditional music from his legendary mentors Alphonse Ardoin and Dewey Balfa (his father in law, for whom he named his group, Balfa Toujours). Given Portland's strong zydeco music community, dancing is expected. The Cactus Blossoms, a sibling country music duo from Minneapolis, open. Klauder's own Country Band and Cajun icons Jesse Lége and Joel Savoy headline June 25th and 26th, respectively.
