Traditional Song or Cover?
Listening to Radio National I stumbled across a beautiful version
of "Won't You Come and Sing for Me" being performed by
Chris Theli (mandolin guru from Nickel Creek https://www.facebook.com/NickelCreek).
His stripped back version of this traditional gospel song inspired me to get a bit Indie Bluegrass in this version of Wayfaring Stranger.
I have been busy writing my own songs lately so messing around with an existing tune made me wonder ....When does a cover stop being a cover and become a traditional folk/gospel standard?
