I find I'm unsure what Thomas is seeking. He is interested in performers who are "reworking traditional source material, performance style and arrangement"

Haven't interpreters (often called "revivalists" in this context) done this for a very long time? How about the Weavers, or the Kingston Trio?

And the performers that interest Thomas operate "usually outside the realm of traditional performance." Do you mean, like, on a stage?
