Artists to Watch: Pokey Lafarge

By September 26, 2011

Follow me on:

Pokey LafargeSure, Pokey Lafarge has been touring for a decade or more. Sure, he self-released his debut album Marmalade back in 2007, and has since dropped two more albums (including a vinyl release on Jack White's Third Man Records). But his most recent release, this year's Middle of Everywhere (out July 2011 on Free Dirt Records), is the one which has upped Lafarge's profile on the national folk and Americana music scene considerably.

If you've yet to make a musical acquaintance with Pokey Lafarge & the South City Three, I'd suggest now's as good a time as any to check out this profile and brief bio. Or, you can catch the troupe on the road this fall - they'll be making appearances clear across the eastern half of the US from now until the beginning of December. Tour dates below:
