Pokey LaFarge doesn't play ragtime, early jazz and blues as a stiff re-enactment – he has the right proportions of reverence and vibrancy to earn him a deal with Jack White's Third Man Records, which released LaFarge's self-titled album in 2013. LaFarge also has been featured on NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts and the soundtrack to the second season of "Boardwalk Empire." His music has plenty of swing, too, which is important when you're playing your only tour date in Montana on Valentine's Day. The Feb. 14 concert starts at 8 p.m. at the Bitterroot Performing Arts Center. For more information or to buy tickets, go to bitterrootperformingarts.org.
