Fusing the sounds of the past with the energy of the present day, Americana singer-songwriter Pokey LaFarge makes music inspired by old-time country, blues, folk and Western swing. Born Andrew Heissler in 1983—though nicknamed Pokey by his mother due to his slow-moving nature as a child—LaFarge developed an early interest in American literature, history and 20th century roots music. By his teens, LaFarge was combining his passions into his own music, accompanying himself on guitar, mandolin and banjo. He later crossed paths with a handful of like-minded musicians and was soon touring with his own combo, the South City Three. This solo performance follows up his SMF debut in 2014.
