Fusing the rustic sounds of the past with his own wry humor and roots music sensibilities, singer/songwriter Pokey LaFarge makes music influenced by old-time country, blues, folk, and Western swing. A wide-ranging troubadour since the mid-2000s, LaFarge gained greater recognition in 2012 touring with Jack White. This recognition paved the way for 2015’s Jimmy Sutton-produced Something in the Water, which peaked in the Top 30 of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. 2020’s Rock Bottom Rhapsody was a boldly eclectic collection that fused strong contemporary influences with LaFarge’s retro sound, a maturation he further showcased that year with In the Blossom of their Shade.
 
“Limiting myself to a genre has never really been my thing,” says Pokey LaFarge. “I’m most purely a rambler. I’m traveling the world all the time, and my songs have been directly influenced by my travels. You’re liable to hear something in my songs that sounds like traditional jazz; next thing you know, you might be hearing something that sounds like Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline mixed with the chanson singers of France, or a waltz mixed with cumbia, or soul mixed with swing.”

This event is supported in part by a grant from the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts and funded in part by a grant from the Green Bay Packers Foundation.
