Bloomington-born LaFarge has a repertiore that’s a mix of Americana, early jazz, country blues, early 20th century string-band, and Appalachian folk. Now based in St. Louis, he tours internationally both with and without his band.
His solo show at the Independent Media Center is part of his extensive summer tour. You can get a feel for Pokey in this 2015 session of World Cafe. His latest album was released on Rounder Records in 2017, so his stop in Urbana will be fresh and interesting.
