If you’re remotely into traditional bluegrass and haven’t seen this video, you may have been living in a cave.

I’m not posting it to alert you to newly-unearthed footage, but to point out the stark differences between English folk singing (some of which I’m featuring today) and the melismatic Scots-Irish style that is one of the building blocks of bluegrass music. If there’s a better example of the latter on the Internet than this one, I don’t know where to find it.

This is Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys, featuring the astounding Keith Whitley on “Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone”.

Can you even say the formula of area now?
Can you even scream the dreams you swore would never go out? Who was the one who let my hopes just curl up die? Hey, who could it be? No, it’s gotta be… Just open up your eyes, why don’t you grow up and see? But what the hell is “growing up” and tell me when will I be? Can a single person out there just explain it to me? Hey, just tell me how It’s not like I care now

This is staggering! An un-bluegrass take on a sometimes-bluegrass tune with all the passion one hopes for in bluegrass.

Norma Waterson (here with husband and musical partner, Martin Carthy on guitar) explores the origins of an English folk song that’s very old indeed, and one that almost certainly gave birth to this bluegrass classic by Ralph Stanley. Bluegrass fans, I know you know the one, but check out the video anyway; it is powerful.

Heavenly harmonies. Steel guitar. Refugees from The Byrds, and that bluegrass group that Andy Griffith used to sing with. Country rock. Yes!

Here are Doug Dillard and Gene Clark with their version of The Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down”.

There’s always a seed
Before there’s a rose
The more that it rains
The more I will grow
