Parent Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Modern old-time music is a genre that blends traditional Appalachian folk music with contemporary elements. It features acoustic instruments such as banjos, fiddles, and guitars, and often incorporates elements of blues and country music. The lyrics often tell stories of rural life and the struggles of working-class people. The genre has gained popularity in recent years, with a new generation of musicians putting their own spin on the classic sound.
