July 10, 2011 On his new album, LaFarge tears through the sounds of the past with manically skittish energy. Middle of Everywhere sizzles and crackles along with speed, verve and style — as archaic as a megaphone crooner, but timeless like great bluegrass.
April 20, 2011 LaFarge writes and performs original, sometimes traditional music steeped in American blues, country and Western swing from the days when 78s ruled the record player. Watch him perform a short set at the NPR Music offices, with the help of his band The South City Three.
