Head for Art Hill Plaza for the Saint Louis Art Museum’s Art After 5 Music Series on June 22.
Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three will perform as the series held the fourth Friday of every month takes to the outdoors.
The free concert begins at 7 p.m. No tickets required.
According to the Art Museum:
The St. Louis-based band plays an innovative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues, and western swing. Parlor guitar-playing lead singer Pokey LaFarge attests to a deep and abiding love of American twang, which has led the group to produce creative new works as well as to masterfully cover traditional tunes. Touted as “simply charming” by NPR’s Bob Boilen, the four-man ensemble will provide ideal musical and thematic support for the recently opened free summer exhibition, Restoring an American Treasure: The Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley.
