Thread Name: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
I occasionally play in a group called "Wee Five Folk"; acoustic guitar, banjo, baritone ukelele and me on my B/C box or keyboard, + limited percussion. Most of the repertoire is early pop stuff, Doris Day, Elvis Presley, Beach Boys, Buddy Holly, Beatles, Lonnie Donegan, Eagles, Kris Kristofferson, Simon and Garfunkel, etc, etc. A brief nod to some of our own songs and Scottish and Irishfolk, but the majority of each set list is pop.
Our audience is a couple of clubs for people with various disabilities, and they love it: and they know a lot of the words and sing along lustily.
