Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Wake the Dead, a band based in No. California, approaches some of the more accessible Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia songs from a "Celtic" angle and grafts them to traditional Irish and O'Carolan tunes. The instrumental work is stellar but the vocals can be a bit lacking, IMHO. They've recorded 2 or 3 CD's of this type of material.
