Pokey LaFarge Album Coming This June

Posted by Third Man on 27 March 2013

Third Man Records is happy to announce a new partnership with one of our favorite musicians out there working today, Pokey LaFarge. Pokey and his band bring a focus and energy to the American Roots genre with infectious original material that sits at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing. With his effortless charisma and distinctive charm, Pokey has crafted a genre all his own--and one that extends well beyond the music alone.

Summertime is the right time for Pokey's sun-blessed riverboat style, and this June will mark our release of his next full length LP / CD titled simply Pokey LaFarge (produced by Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Ketch Secor). Look out for a single from the album, "Central Time", which will be released ahead of the full length in May.

To celebrate (we love to celebrate), we'll be hosting Pokey and his band here at Third Man in our Blue Room live venue for a record release party / direct to acetate recording session on June 1st.

Pokey LaFarge and his band will be hitting the highways and byways this spring and summer, check all the dates here and be sure to see them when they come through your town!
