Best Sharp Dressed Man: Pokey LaFarge

LaFarge is of a different era, with a sound that's tangentially country and incorporates elements of Western swing, ragtime and honky-tonk. It's jazzy and bluesy too, part Vaudeville dive and part variety show — dancing music that demands dapper clothes. Timeless and transporting, LaFarge performs with a six-piece band that manages to shine while serving his unique sound. His Rounder debut, Something in the Water, captures the harmonies, cowboy-folk and overall swing of his live show — which was on grand display at Telluride.
