Dylan Cover #225 Barnyard Tea "Maggie's Farm"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover from Barnyard Tea, their take on "Maggie's Farm"

Thoughts on Dylan's Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
"Maggie's Farm" is classic Dylan, everyone thinks they know what it's about and they are sure they are right, but they all think different things. I will confess I like the sped up Electric version from Newport Folk Festival that caused the end of popular folk music (in theory) and really solidified Dylan's pop music career. It is a great tune and really flows in lots of forms making it perfect to cover. 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Taken directly from their youtube page, Barnyard Tea is a bluegrass band from Amsterdam. More info here: Bluegrass from Amsterdam! Barnyard Tea performing Bob Dylan's song Maggie's Farm at Westerpark, Amsterdam. More info and bookings:
Thoughts on Cover:
While truncated it is a fun sped up ramble through the song. A fun way to start off this week.
