PROPER MUSIC: New artists you must hear in 2012 (Pt. 1)...
Pokey LaFarge - Middle Of Everywhere
You'll have seen Pokey Lafarge on Jools Hollands' Hootenanny. Channeling American roots, country blues, and jazz traditions of the early 20th century, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three’s newest recording is surely a most inspired 21st -century creation. LaFarge has always had the grace, charm, and flair of the musicians of long ago, but "Middle of Everywhere" shows just how much of a musical force he is, and how much command he possesses as he steps out with accordant confidence.
