KFAI is pleased to sponsor Pokey LaFarge's Central Time Tour at the Cedar Cultural Center on Sunday, September 21.
He returns to The Cedar with a whole entourage of kindred spirits and music-makers including Dom Flemons (of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), Joel Savoy, Jesse Lége & The Cajun Country Revival, The Tillers, and The Loot Rock Gang.
Pokey LaFarge is a musician, songwriter, bandleader, entertainer, innovator and preservationist, whose 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.
Pokey’s music transcends the confines of genre, continually challenging the notion that tradition-bearers fail to push musical boundaries. Rather than merely conjuring up half-forgotten imagery of days past, Pokey is a lyrical storyteller, the plot delivered smoothly through his dynamic vocals.
Both on stage and off, his effortless wit never fails to charm audiences, giving way to a live music experience that manages to be grandiose and unassuming all at once.
