"The Bard Rocks"

Old Country  Performance -

It is not surprising that a folkie such as The Bard would like the old country songs. They both stem from everyday people, their feelings, loves, worries and their stories. They have great melody lines, uncomplicated lyrics - they feel real. Country just added drums and electric instruments. Today's country is more packaged, is big business, and has grown to be nearly musically indistinguishable from rock. But the old stuff, now that was good.
