Pokey LaFarge

Jazz, Blues, Swing, Country, Folk
Of the many roots musicians traveling the world, spreading the early American music tradition, St. Louis musician and singer Pokey LaFarge is the next in line to make a significant impact on music enthusiasts everywhere. His creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing rings true and fine, making him one of the most innovative of all the purists performing American roots music today. It’s wonderfully infectious, and all laid down in front of a big, big swingin’ beat. A lot of performers are content to play old material, reworking the tunes to give them new life or to stamp them with personal style. But LaFarge both achieves timelessness with his original songs and honors the legendary songwriters and musicians of songs he covers. He uses his booming voice as an instrument with an incredible range; above his parlor guitar one moment he shouts a line and the next he croons. And while his music may be a fitting soundtrack to R. Crumb’s comics, don’t dare to call it “old-timey.” Whether performing solo or with his crew of painstakingly hand-picked supporting musicians, Lafarge’s extraordinary blend of raw talent and refined, idiosyncratic charm turns reviewers into poets as they attempt to label his one-of-a-kind sound.

Steve Earle

Americana/Roots
A protegé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Steve Earle became a master storyteller in his own right as his songs were recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others. 1986 saw the release of his debut album, "Guitar Town,' which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term “New Country.” After a downward spiral of heroin addiction and the loss of his recording deal, Earle re-emerged in 1996 with "Train a Comin," which earned a Gremmy nomination for best contrmporary folk album. He delved into bluegrass in 2000, when he recorded "The Mountain" with The Del McCoury Band; into acting when he played HIV-addicted drug addict and counselor Walon in parts of three seasons on "The Wire" (his version of Tom Waits' "Way Down in the Hole" was the theme to Season 5); into overt political songs (left-wing) with the 2002 album "Jerusalem"; and has ventured far and wide musically ever since. In 2015, he released his 16th studio album, "Terraplane," and in 2016 he recorded a duet album with Shawn Colvin, simply entitled "Colvin & Earle." Later in 2016, he and the Dukes went on tour to commemorate the 30th anniversary of "Guitar Town."
