Pokey LaFarge to tour Europe

Pokey LaFarge have announced a European tour in the autumn, kicking off with five UK dates.

The country-blues outfit will hit the road in support of seventh album Something In The Water – their first for Rounder Records.

Leader LaFarge, real name Andrew Heissler, first got the blues bug as a teenager in the mid 90s while working in a pizza parlour in Illnois. He was inspired by the work of early artists Sleepy John Estes, Muddy Waters, Skip James and others.

Something In The Water is on sale now.
