Now they are looking forward to coming to Donegal to performing at the festival’s Feast Of The Senses in Letterkenny Town Park on July 9 and McGrory’s, Culdaff on July 10, the final two dates of the UK & Ireland tour.Pokey and his band are originally from St Louis and play a creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing rings true and fine.You can look forward to covers such as the folkie tongue-twister Chitlin’ Cookin’ Time in Cheatham County and lots of new original from Pokey’s pen like Pack It Up.So popular has their sound proven in this part of the world, that Pokey and the band received their very own headline slot at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow.
