Pokey LaFarge with Al Scorch
Musician, songwriter, bandleader, entertainer, innovator and preservationist Pokey LaFarge is on a mission, encouraging audiences worldwide to think differently about what it means to celebrate musical traditions. Taking as a springboard songs from the first half of last century, Pokey breathes new life into classic forms, aided and abetted by a newly expanded 6-piece line-up, complete with trumpet and clarinet. Tonight's show will be a preview of Pokey's upcoming June release of new album Pokey LaFarge on Jack White's Third Man Records.
As Pokey explains it, “It’s not retro music. It’s American music that never died.”
Al Scorch out of Chicago opens.
