Pokey LaFarge

Pokey LaFarge’s Modern Reverence For Old Time Sounds

September 26, 2013 - Pokey LaFarge and his band join us in the studio today and we are going to be transported in time!
Pokey plays vital roots music that includes bluegrass, western swing, country blues and more. Call it ld-timey, call it throwback, this musician from the mid-west embraces it fully. Pokey paid his dues with a “No gig is too small” attitude and has gradually built a devoted following. The self-titled new album is Pokey’s first on Jack White’s Third Man Records and it was produced by Ketch Secor from Old Crow Medicine Show.
