Thread Name: Nickel Creek--overrated?
Subject: RE: Nickel Creek--overrated?
Don't get out much these days. I've not heard them but I hope to some day. What this is about though is that those who were there in the beginning, and KNOW what bluegrass music is and how it ought to sound, they cannot hear the bluegrass sound in this band. Please keep in mind that the more things change, the more they get different !!!
I feel the same way about my concept of what folk music IS and ISN'T. I feel many here are wrong when they define it too loosely. But whatever I think, I know for sure that it won't stop the changes from happening.
And one day I hope to hear Guest Carthy some day too. ;-)
