Thread Name: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
There are lots of examples of folk versions of pop songs by bluegrass bands, from the Dillards doing Beatles covers in the sixties to Thunder and Rain doing Sweet Child of Mine only recently. But as someone has already suggested itís nothing unusual given the blurring of the boundaries between the different genres of popular music, which is never a bad thing if it winds us purists up a bit.
