Can’t Sit Still

“The Midwest is at the heart of this record. The people playing on these songs are from Wisconsin and Illinois and Chicago and St. Louis, and there’s a certain attitude that comes across in the songs and the way that they’re performed. I’m born and raised in the Midwest, and my family’s been here for generations. This is where I’m from and how I think, and that’s reflected in the music I make.” ~Pokey LaFarge

His music has been called Western swing, twenties jazz, country blues, and dozens of other things. Rolling Stone called it ‘Artisinal Pop.’ What it is to me is thoroughly entertaining, toe-tapping, finger-snapping, tail-feather-shaking fun. It’s nearly as impossible to sit still to as Caro Emerald, and that’s saying quite a lot! So go tap a toe, snap your fingers, and by all means, get those tail-feathers moving! Here comes Pokey LaFarge!

  1. I first heard about Pokey from another blogger. Good thing I have you guys to keep me informed. I don’t like watching him sing, but I do enjoy listening to his music.
