    I realize that not many here have listened to 60's Folk, but will put it up anyway.

    I probably already posted this, but here's one of my all-time favorites
    covering one of my all-time favorites...this Dylan song could have been written by Lou.

    Not better, but made me laugh:



    Probably a real banger for the cool kids in the pre-K set.

    Like a Version as a web series is pretty fun. There's an older series called AV Club Undercover that is similar.

    Damn, thanks for mentioning Eva. She is one of my favorite artists, ripped from us so soon by cancer.

    She was very very smooth.

    Sure...

    Her guitar and vocal arrangements on “ Somewhere over the rainbow “ are just absolutely gorgeous. It took me 3 months to break it down so I can play and sing her version. She has great guitar chops and her vocals are unmatched. Her last public performance was just heart breaking. She went on stage as if she’s not sick at all and died a short time later. One of the songs that I remembered was “ What a wonderful world”. She’s finally made it after years of grinding, working in a nursery to support herself while gigging.

    You are way ahead of me because I am lacking in the area of musical talent.

    Up to five videos can be linked to in a post, so will go with your two choices and add three more.
