Last June, Pokey Lafarge and the South City 3 performed live in our studios on the first day of Summer. Since then they have continued touring the country and ended up appearing on stage at this year's Newport Folk Festival. (Their performance can be heard at the NPR music website) From Newport they flew to England for a tour of the United Kingdom and a stopover in Denmark to perform at the Tonder Festival.

But before they took off, Fortunato was able to get Pokey on the telephone for a quick interview. Asking about the folk festival, his love for early 20th century jazz, blues and country music, and how he got interested in performing.
