Hi all - it's been a while! Thought some of you might the clip below as proof that there ARE young people playing country / old-time music out there. They have to go to folk clubs to do it, though...

Only just watched it, but it's not my cup of tea. I know you could argue that it's country/old timey/bluegrassy but it's still too folky for me. The guys can certainly play though.

Fair enough - thanks for looking. I think the truth of it is that the youngsters are more attracted to whizzy bluegrass stuff than the 40s, 50s and 60s material that a lot of country fans still regard as 'real' country music. And 'oldtime' is just that - it's where country music came from, when Americans were still pretty much Europeans.

Is it the natural progression of youngsters rejecting the 'classic country' beloved of their parent's generation and delving back into the roots; or is it youngsters growing up with a heavy/speed metal background finding a kindred spirit in double-speed bluegrass and old timey?
