music" was invented (quite recently I suspect) to fill the perceived need!
If you work through B & G you will find some surprising examples of "folk"
versions of popular and jazz numbers, especially amongst string bands. The
Dallas String Band's Columbia 14410-D takes some beating from this
standpoint (Chasin' Rainbows/I Used To Call her Baby).
And then at his very next session Coley Jones recorded a version of Our
Gudeman. But this material is all rendered into their own performance style.
