Old-time revivalist Pokey LaFarge returns to Prescott Park! Always energetic and, above all else, fun – this is a band everyone should see and experience. Touring with a 6-piece band, Pokey’s well-rounded arsenal of talents has placed him at the forefront of American music.
Over the last decade, Pokey has won the hearts of music lovers across the globe with his creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing – all while writing original songs that ring true and fine in both spirit and sound.
His music transcends the confines of genre and continually challenges the notion that tradition-bearers fail to push musical boundaries. Pokey is on a mission, encouraging audiences worldwide to think differently about what it means to celebrate musical traditions.
Simply put, Pokey explains, “It’s not retro music. It’s American music that never died.”
