Actually they stay very true to the original music and the lyrics of folk songs, they do a great job with the popular old ones.

I don't think they are interpreting or modifying the music in any way! At least I didn't hear any changes well except Monica's accent that is. I saw them when they came to So Cal and I will again next time they're here.
