Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three – Ships of the Sea Museum – 11/17/11

Another fun and interesting offering presented by Savannah Stopover. Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three will be in the garden at the Ships of the Sea Museum on MLK (near Bryan Street).

Here’s the press release from the Ships of the Sea:

The Savannah Stopover is proud to announce the next installment in its monthly musical series. On November 17, Stopover will welcome the idiosyncratic style of Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three to perform at the Ships of the Sea Museum at 8:30 p.m. The band will play two sets with an intermission in between. Tickets for the show will be $12 and are available online at Showclix.

Of the many roots musicians traveling the world, spreading the early American music tradition, St. Louis musician and singer Pokey LaFarge is the next in line to make a significant impact on music enthusiasts everywhere.

His creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing rings true and fine, making him one of the most innovative of all the purists performing American roots music today. It’s wonderfully infectious, and all laid down in front of a big, big swingin’ beat.

LaFarge and his band have appeared at the Newport Folk Festival, gotten rave reviews for an NPR Tiny Desk Concert, and caught the attention of White Stripes’ auteur Jack White, who recorded a single for the group at his Nashville-based shop, Third Man Records. The band has toured extensively through North America and Europe. It will be there first stop in Savannah.
