Pokey Lafarge

Pokey LaFarge’s Timeless Music Gets Some Contemporary Twists


I cannot think of another artist, other than Pokey Lafarge, that both Garrison Keillor and Jack White are fans of! Pokey prefers to have his music – a mix of old jazz, blues, ragtime and string band music from the past century – referred to as timeless rather than retro. There are always contemporary twists and he has learned to be a tad less reverential which he says serves his music well.. His new album is called Something In The Water. We'll talk with this proud mid-Westerner About the music he loves and about his plan for a Pokey line of affordable work-wear that he would love to launch.
