Pokey la Farge
TUESDAY 5TH NOVEMBER 2013
Pokey's influence is deeply rooted in the heroes and misfits of yesterday; the long lost troubadours of country, the kings of swamp-drenched ragtime, and all the legendary bluesmen of the Cotton Kingdom. The result is a boiling pot of American cultures; a wonderfully fresh and quirky kind of pop music that combines Delta-meets-Appalachia song-writing with a big, big beat. Their 'Riverboat Soul' album went straight to the Number 5 slot on the influential American indie roots chart and stormed the Top Ten of the Americana UK chart as well and entering the Red Lick Blues and R&B Chart, published by fRoots magazine. The South City Three are: Ryan Koenig (Washboard, Harmonica), Adam Hoskins (Guitar) & Joey Glynn (Upright Bass).
