Subject: nouveau 'folk'
I've noticed a number of performers/groups reworking traditional source material, performance style and arrangement usually outside the realm of traditional performance.   "Among the Oak & Ash", "Ollabelle", "Uncle Earl", Colin Meloy (the Shirley Collins tribute ep) etc.
Has anyone seen a written comprehensive evaluation of these and others in this vein? Also would be interested in what others are known to you.
Thanks, Thomas.
