Pokey LaFarge

Fish Creek

Over the last decade, Pokey LaFarge has won the hearts of music lovers across the globe with a lively mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues, and western swing music, which LaFarge has dubbed “riverboat soul.” With a style that is at once ragged and polished, LaFarge is a songwriter, bandleader, innovator, and preservationist whose arsenal of talents has placed him at the forefront of old-time American music. Accompanied by a top-notch backup band, Pokey LaFarge plays with a classic bluesman’s confidence, infusing his performances with dynamic vocals, effortless wit, and good old-fashioned storytelling. Time Out Chicago writes, “His jumpy American roots music is pure joy.”
