Root Down

Pokey LaFarge arrived in this world perhaps a bit too late. The 34-year-old often presents himself like an early 20th-century pinup, and his songwriting equally recalls a bygone era of manly, blue-collar workers and troubled times. The St. Louis, Mo., native’s earliest recordings look back — way back — to the beginning of recorded music. He digs deep into the root of all things Americana, rhythm and blues, folk, swing and bluegrass. In May, he released Manic Revelations, which explores the sounds of the early days of rock and roll, Motown, rockabilly, and, of course, more of his standard, rootsy fare. Pokey LaFarge plays on Friday, July 7, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Kelsey Waldon opens.
