Playalong: La La Blues – Pokey LaFarge

What’s a playalong? It’s where we put a video up and provide chords in the same key. Come on, admit it; you knew that one.

Pokey LaFarge heads a small acoustic band out of St. Louis, MO. They’re billed as American Roots musicians, but that doesn’t really cover it. You’ll hear blues, you’ll recognize bluegrass in there, and you’ll also notice a great deal of wit and swing. People call him a time traveler. That’s good enough.
