(The Dirty Three are a 3 piece without a singer. Just violin, guitar and (jazz)drumming).
Anyone know of any other bands that come under this genre?
Also, anyone know of any other 'speicialized genres' like that one?
Looked them up and they are extremely talented, thanks.
I won't categorize the whole band's collection, but from the songs that caught
my ear it sounds like they were partly influenced by old country Irish and
Welsh/English ballads. They slowed them down plenty, but the original old school
progressions are still there.
Quoted from Wiki.
"The Dirty Three's sound is distinctive, composed of folk melody, rock energy,
elements of classical, chamber music, jazz and blues, Celtic, and other European
folk styles - a diverse collection of influences, though the style of music the trio
play is uniquely their own, born from years of musical experience."
