In a recent discussion with an ancient (my age) English folksinger, I told him I wanted to write something about Skiffle that would help my readers appreciate the movement (which paralleled the American Folk Revival, but included elements that most Americans would find cheesy, especially fifty years later. In that conversation, I asked him if he could point me to any Skiffle recordings that wouldn’t make the average North American’s skin crawl. Then I realized that a lot of "folk-inspired" recordings from the same era were pretty cheesy too.
The whole story is here:
