Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three in Dublin, 3 July 2011

Paul Foley of the Ubangi Stomp Club in Dame Court, Dublin 2, sends this news:

On Sunday 3 July Ubangi Stomp Club, in association with 103.2 Dublin City FM, proudly present Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three. From St Louis, Missouri, Pokey LaFarge delivers a creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues, and western swing. It’s wonderfully infectious, and all laid down in front of a big, big swingin’ beat. His sounds are truly original and modern, yet LaFarge’s influences are apparent, as tinges of Blind Boy Fuller, Bob Wills, and Jimmie Rodgers are easily recognisable.

Pokey is accompanied by fellow St Louis musicians the South City Three: Joey Glynn on upright bass, Adam Hoskinson on guitar, and Ryan Koenig on harmonica and washboard.

'... could be the birth of the next Bill Monroe; creating such a fine mix of ragtime, jugband, blues, folk and country, he has found his own genre' (Terry Nolan of No Depression

Special guests on the night will be Dublin's own versatile folk/roots outfit, Gary Fitzpatrick's Dead Zoo. Admission €15 on the door, 8.00 p.m. start.

See the band on YouTube: 1 and 2. Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three will be on tour in Ireland for the following week; dates are on the BIB calendar.
