Though this might make an enjoyable thread and to start it off a performance which combines all that's best in folk music, an extremely proficient musician, cracking tune and an audience which is fully committed to the music.....in fact the audience are a large part of this performance, their excitement and emotional commitment are palpable.

When I think of youtube performances, tracks ripped off CDs are not the first to come to mind.


    For some reason, the people that bring this up are always anonymous. But tracks ripped from CDs are a good source of music on YouTube. YouTube either controls their posting or pays the royalties, so I see nothing morally wrong with posting ripped tracks on YouTube. If you want to discuss the morality of posting ripped tracks on YouTube, start another thread.

There are very few genuine You Tube performances, in the sense that the musicians specifically arranged for themselves to be filmed for this purpose.
So, mostly, we're discussing performances from live gigs, CD TRACKS and so on.

I'd much rather discuss my favourite gig highlights and favourite COS.

There are actually a good selection of Youtube performances and whole series of them like the Tiny Desk Concerts; Songs From The Shed Sessions and Narrowboat Sessions. Plus lots of individual performances from especially younger performers. Here are two that always brighten up my day

I always think this live performance is better than Paulo's official video

Tony is the God of Irish traditional music in my view Stu.
There is a lovely documentary on the tube which explores his views on the music......a bulwark against creeping fusion and dilution.
Gettin' back to American music, one of my favourite writers and performers is Iris Dement, this song is a heartbreaker and a stern warning to the elites social and political. easy's gettin harder every day.

Will,

I came across your video of Midnight on the Water when I was learning to play it.

I must confess that I occasionally ruin your performance by accompanying you on my fiddle (that's something you will never have to suffer) but most times I just sit and listen.

It is lovely; to my ears, nigh-on perfect.

And that smile at the end?

Thank you!

Some nice comments and a nice performance from Will.
That's the thing about folk music it does create a bond between performer and audience, and also between performers, as can be seen in many of these videos. This music touches and inspires our emotional side more than any other with the exception perhaps of classical music.

I'm very taken at present with Russian folk-rock band Otava Yo. Suggest you turn on the English subtitles.

Not to mention Mongolian folk rock.

Only just got to listen to these offerings!

Some good stuff there, including some artists I'd not heard of -
and thank you, Peter Laban, for your post on 18May2018, which introduced me to the wondrous world of Rushad Eggleston, haha!!!

I don't have a "favourite all time youtube performance" - SOOOO much good music in the world, it's just too hard to choose.
HOWEVER, here is a track that has recently caught me by surprise, coz I find myself listening to it at least every few days.

It's by the Birmingham (UK) a cappella harmony group "Sons of Pitches" and they cover JP Cooper & Stormzy's "Momma's Prayers"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er2qkl9CI7k&list=PLXpHBAJB6ElbPM2tKHzar5I0i5QBxtHcz

Of course it won't be everyone's cup-of-tea, but it moves me!

Cheers,

I have been listening to a singer/songwriter from New Jersey
named Mike Sinatra. He does both original and cover songs.
There is a lot of songs he performs on Youtube but to just
give two songs that are very good to get a feel for his style are,

"We Don't Know Why" (Mike Sinatra original) and "This Old Guitar",
a John Denver cover.

Sorry, I don't know how to write a direct link to hear these two particular songs so maybe someone can provide the link or just go to Youtube and type in the name Mike Sinatra and search for the titles of the two songs I suggested above.
See what you think of this performer.

and meanwhile, two ALL - a cappella harmony ensembles with great singers and stunning beatboxers, that have fast become My Favourites : Home Free and VoicePlay.
Though the two tracks below are just my current faves, their variety of material and huge repertoire is actually amazing and I haven't yet found anything that these U.S. groups do, that is not excellent!

Hi Joe Offer,

I posted information on June 24, 2020 about a New Jersey singer songwriter named Mike Sinatra. I recommended two songs to listen
to, "I Don't Know Why" a Mike Sinatra original and one cover song
of John Denver's, "This Old Guitar"
I don't know how to post the link that you can just click on to
take you right to those songs as other people do on their posts.

Joe, can you please help me with this and write the link out on my post
when you have time?
Thank you in advance.

The only format I have to get on-the interney with.
No Smart Phone, computer or lap top.

Difficult typing on this older model Tablet and letters you type sometimes jump all over the place and tricky to control.

One of those performers who seems to be everywhere and involved in everything, is Sally Rogers. Since March, she has been performing one song a day on Facebook and YouTube, in her "A Song a Day Keeps the Virus Away" series. Take a look:Oh, and she teaches a great music theory class - I attended at least a couple of her classes at the Getaway in Maryland over the years.
