i joined the americana music association uk a couple of months ago. love ’em, a very pro-active organisation that puts on shows in the good times, and is rocking the online season with seminars and more whilst face coverings are all the vogue.
being a big fan of the likes of steve earle, dylan, springsteen, well i guess i definitely thought i’m playing americana. so that’s gotta be my home association amauk. there been plenty written and a bunch of videos too with people musing about the definition of americana – lots of the stuff that comes under that category is really a lot more country than what i do, i’d say.
and that all reminds me bit of some documentary i saw years ago, country singers talking about what defined that genre. none of it leads anywhere or is remotely useful i’m afraid, but it’s the fun in the singing i suppose.
