Epiphone's favorite modern bluesman Pokey LaFarge is on tour this month performing his usual long, breathless shows and including lots of new material, too. The tour kicks off in Grand Rapids, Michigan February 9 and go throughout the midwest. Check out Mr. LaFarge's website for details and read our classic interview about LaFarge's 1946 Epiphone Spartan ("my archtop cuts, man!") and the importance of making good records.

"Timelessness is what I'm working towards and time is the very thing it will take in order to solidify myself in the eyes of the world. I'll let the fads fade away, I'll let the generations evolve, and I'll evolve with them. But it's important for people to remember that any legendary musician has had one foot in his roots and one in the future."  Check out the new Masterbilt Century Collection inspired by Pokey's favorite era of Epi archtops.
