Pokey LaFarge at the Ark

Those who attended the 2019 Ann Arbor Folk Festival will be familiar with Pokey LaFarge, whose ragtime, jazz, swing, and country music influences provide a true mix of American genres that is all his own. LaFarge is a musician who has clearly studied the traditions of these genres but is all about expounding on them rather than simply repeating them. You’ll find yourself tapping in to familiar sounds from old time tunes that you love while learning how these music traditions can be transformed into something new with LaFarge’s music.
