Pokey LaFarge/Caroline Rose 

When: Tue., May 12, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $15 ADV, $18 DOS
Like a street musician amid Steinbeckian setting, Pokey LaFarge has built a career on music first made popular some 100 years ago. His style has been referred to as “riverboat chic,” to be clear, and he appears physically and sartorially as a man revived from a vivacious former life in 1920. Pokey’s new album, Something in the Water, seems to expand the instrumentation a bit while maintaining firm footing in early 20th-century music. His band members know their way around strings and gentle percussion, mingling dynamically with Pokey’s Mississippi-dredged drawl (cue “Where I’m Gonna Go” from the new album). His last show in Cleveland was a rollickin’ night of old-timey music and terrific guitar playing. (Sandy)
