Pokey LaFarge Makes a Visit to New City

Acclaimed American roots composer and musician Pokey LaFarge visited New City School in April and treated fifth grade students to a private masterclass in American roots music history and instruments.

Students were given the opportunity to listen to some of LaFarge's favorite American roots music selections in their original medium  -- on a vintage record player -- something some students had never experienced before! LaFarge explained the history of roots music in America and showed off a few of his favorite guitars from his personal collection. After the lesson, students were treated to a private solo mini-concert by LaFarge himself.
