Guess nobody around here is into Bluegrass. Or old Jewish customs.
Oh, well .......
Nah, it's just that this forum gets the once-a-week look rather than the daily look...
Kinda reminds me of Pete Seeger and all the other folksies doing "Tzena"...
Couldn't find The Weavers, Pete's group that popularized it for the folk movement. found one of Arlo but he got way too "Alice's Restaurant" telling stories in the middle of the song... here's The Wellingtons.

Cool. Next we need the hip-hop version. :singing:

Hmmm. Went to find more and got bumped off track by just how much rabid antisemitism there is on the interwebs...
Nice. On the first one Marshall Mathers might sue for copyright infringement, though!! But probly not.
I'm HUGE into bluegrass. I play standup bass and mando at festival jams. I really get into the fusion stuff and the bluegrass cover bands like "Hayseed / Deseed" (AC/DC songs bluegrass style), "Leftover Salmon" and "Banjovi". I'm really a purist, though, and get into Bill Monroe, and traditional stuff.
This was one of the worst "bluegrass" performances I've ever heard.
Snob. You must be from the Boston area.
Didn't have that high lonesome dobro. Bro.
Watching that was very instructive to me. Watching the "thank God I'm a country boy"-style English interludes, I now think I may have an idea how the hardcore hip-hop crowd felt about Blondie. In the Hebrew they kept making "k" sounds instead of "ch" sounds yanno?
For me, it was very strange to watch. But it's not for me. It's for baptists in Texas.
Yeah. I just like bluegrass the way it was meant to be played...lotta soul, rhythm, and no chiors or drums. Drums are RIGHT OUT! 50 miles westa. Bostonians think we're in Indian Territory, living in log cabins. Very different lifestyle out here from Boston.
So you must be stocked up on good local products, like Kahr pistols and maybe a Thompson throw-back or two, eh? .... to deal with the "Indian problem" and all that ...

Believable, especially the [highlight]whiskey[/highlight] part.
