Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three are frequent visitors to Noblesville and the Folk School. They are great folks, amazingly entertaining and ways leave us wanting more. They’ve had a hugely successful year. They’ve toured Britain (twice?) and were the surprise hit of the Newport Folk Festival.
They are now working on a film project with St. Louis director Bill Streeter entitled BRICK by Chance and Fortune: A St. Louis Story. They posted a rough track from the movie and I’ve been listening to it all morning.
Pokey’s sound has matured so much over the last year and the band is much tighter. It’s a great sound that hasn’t been heard live in 60 or 70 years.
