BiographyPowell's instrumental range makes him a hot commodity in traditional music circles from Louisiana to Appalachia. Banjo player, mandolinist, violinist and more, Powell keeps busy both as a session player and a member of Balfa Toujours as well as performing traditional Appalachian airs under his own name. On Hand Me Down (1999), Powell skillfully revitalizes old songs like "The Keys to the Kingdom" and sets them a-haunting once again.
