Good folk bands/songs with fast 2/4 rhythm?

Asked by mirifique (1537points) June 14th, 2010

Looking for songs/bands akin to Dave Matthew’s “Two Step”, so, in 2/4, and sort of folk or bluegrass-ish. Looking for a good place to start.

Any bluegrass band plays in 2/4 or ¾. I play bluegrass and have albums from about 40 different people. Right now my favorite album is Ricky Skaggs “Bluegrass Rules!”

I am no musical genius, but aren’t most rockabilly tunes in 2/4?
Mystery Train is a great tune.

Sticking with Folk songs, try Freight Train

(Excuse the 30 sec. intro, it’s worth the wait IMO)

@jaytkay Our band plays that song. It’s one of my favorites.
