Bio

Since before the 20th century, it has been the idea behind the work of the songster to showcase a wide variety of playing and songwriting styles. Timelessly original, Louisville, Ky’s Pokey LaFarge delivers a contagious mix of folk, ragtime, and blues that will warm your blood! With dark and dreamy lyrics and a deeply powerful voice, Pokey presents a lights out performance wrapped in cynical humor and quirky style. He has also been known to highlight his original sets with accapella gospel numbers while clapping and stomping. “Marmalade”, the debut record from Pokey LaFarge is like a first novel; raw, visionary, and passionate. It is a must have for any lover of true acoustic music. It features all original tunes by Pokey LaFarge. Pokey’s music really started to take shape in 2001 with a string band known as The Schwillbillies. Public acclaim soon followed in local and national newspapers as well as local and national television and radio stations. After three years of nationwide performing he left the ensemble to pursue a solo career in 2004. Years of experience on the road developed his music into what it is today: personal, even sorrowful at times, yet retaining his stylish and joyous perspective in his music. LaFarge has had the honor of sharing stages with prominent and influential acts such as Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Bros., Backyard Tire Fire, The Crooked Jades, The Derek Trucks Band, Nick Africano, Robinella, and Donna the Buffalo. Pokey has also toured extensively with the Hackensaw Boys where he is a guest mandolin player.
