Wanted to share some vids featuring different Americana vocals. The first video was taken at a sacred harp singing convention, It is part of the shape note tradition and is strictly an a cappella style of performance.
Emmylou Harris, Allison Krauss, and Gillian Welch recorded this piece for the movie Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?, always thought it was very nice.
In a similar vain, the Mountain Man sing largely original a cappella music, this group is based out of Vermont. Check out the insane harmonies in their song Sewee Sewee.
Had a couple more to share, I don’t know too much about either group but I was really blown away by their music as well…
