Dirk Powell is a prolific Americana multi-instrumentalist with a long list of accomplishments and credits as a session player, songwriter, singer, and recording artist. He's also the man Steve Earle calls "the greatest old-time banjo player alive." Walking Through the Clay, his fourth solo release, honors traditional American music while infusing it with modern sensibilities. Powell blends acoustic and electric instruments and pulls from multiple styles here, including Appalachian, Cajun, and bluegrass. There are New Orleans horns on "Abide with Me" (featuring Levon Helm on drums and Amy Helm on backing vocals), zydeco rhythms on "Spoonbread" and "That Ain't Right," and Southern rock on "As I Went Out a Walkin'." Powell can do it all with taste and conviction. Walking Through the Clay is an inspired release by a first-rate musician and storyteller.
