Pokey LaFarge

Glenn Hall, with thanks to Maiden Alley Cinema

American roots musician Pokey LaFarge played a sold out show at Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema last week. Tracy Ross had a moment to chat with him before the performance about his love of baseball, his favorite music outside of the style he plays, favorite venues around the world and time zones. We also hear a couple songs from the evening's performance.
