riverboat soul

My Mom introduced me to the musical stylings of Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three, a rambling quartet that defies categorisation, referencing ragtime, bluegrass and swing but refined as to not come off as period or nostalgic. Take a sample with a performance of three songs from NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series that comes a few years after their first album, “Marmelade.” One on of the artist’s new pieces that’s also really catchy—“Something in the Water”—should pop up next in the playlist right after this medley finishes.
