Come enjoy a special, intimate show with Pokey LaFarge that will be undoubtably be an unforgettable evening.

LaFarge writes and performs original, sometimes traditional music steeped in American blues, country and Western swing from the days when 78s ruled the record player.

LaFarge looks like an old folk musician right out of Nashville’s 1950s heyday — almost amusingly out of place in the 21st-century crowd. His voice has a tinge of the classic country warble; lyrics recall the old-timey jazz of the South. Yet while harmonica riffs and lyrics recall the music of the past, guitar riffs and swing rhythms wield a sharp, enjoyable edge that elevates LaFarge’s music from a mere rehash of old hits.
