“Our theme for Week Three ┬áis INTERPRETATIONS. The “cover version” done by the “covers band” has a bad press, especially in the post-Beatles era. But we have a much longer cultural tradition, the folk tradition, in which the material is common to the culture and all the originality comes in the performance. Is this a more sustainable cultural model in the era of filesharing?”
