Enter To Win Tickets To Pokey LaFarge!
Roots musician Pokey LaFarge is coming to the Tractor on May 6th, and if you like REAL roots music, he is not to be missed! Between 2011-2013 Jack White's Third Man label released a full-length, an EP, and a 7" because of LaFarge's slavish devotion to and expert treatment of old-timey American music. His songs take listeners to another time, with hints of ragtime, western swing, blues, trad-jazz, Appalachian folk, big band, and beyond, all taking center stage. LaFarge's latest full-length, Something In The Water, is on Rounder Records, and Jon Dennis of UK publication The Guardian describes it as "a riverboat trip through the US midwest, recorded in Chicago and performed by musicians from the region. It’s a spirited attempt to keep American roots music – country blues, early jazz, ragtime and western swing – alive," and he adds that LaFarge is "blissfully unaffected by the music of the last 80 years." Enter to win tickets to Pokey's 5/6 show at the Tractor by e-mailing us with the subject line "Bad Girl" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 5/5. Good luck!
