Pokey Lafarge and The South City Three came a long way from St Louis to Glasgows Celtic Connections 2010, bringing with him not only his full repertoire of Ragtime, Barrel House, Hokum and Cat House Country, but introducing the best possible frame work for his work The South City Three, if ever there were four young men borned out of their time its these hep cats and finger poppin daddies, steeped in the tradition of the old southern troubadour misfits and juke joint jazzers. Pokey and the crew bring to life the old with the news, into a heady mix of good time, big time, rag time riches.
They have just released an album together, called "River Boat Soul" and have been knocking them dead along the wide Mississippi and in all the gin joints in all the towns all over the world, now its the turn of a luxurious music hall in the merchant quarer of Glasgow .
Lady's and Gentle men it is my distinct pleasure to bring you the egregiously entertaining, fantastically folky and feverishly funky Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three
