The best thing about non-mainstream forms of music taking on the biggest hits of the last 60 years is that the styles don’t often align. Take bluegrass act, Iron Horse for instance, they’ve done everything from Metallica to Modest Mouse and many times improved the song or at the very least played it in such a way that it was enjoyable again. A breath of life? This past weekend’s show was no different.
The Tramps, Greats, and Hamblin, with their invidual styles OWNED every one of those songs, regardless of their copyright.
