Pokey LaFarge & Co. at the Ubangi Stomp Club, 28 Oct. 2012

Thanks to Paul Foley of the Ubangi Stomp Club in central Dublin for a reminder that Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three (USA) are back in Dublin next Sunday, 28 October, at 8.00 p.m. in Whelan's. Tickets at €22 are still available from www.tickets.ie and from www.whelanslive.com. Paul also sends this press release:

Following their stompin' success on 'Later with Jools' on New Year’s Eve and a sold-out UK and Ireland tour, Pokey returns to Dublin for what promises to be yet another musical highlight from the great man. 

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 recognizable. From St Louis, Missouri, 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.
