Are we on the middle of another folk scare? I went through one 60 years ago.

No we're not. Don't be concerned. You're exhibiting mild symptoms of post 60s folk scare disorder. (P60sFSD. They're harmless when properly managed.)
It's that the world of acoustic music is always on the lookout for those who can play AND make you feel something. Combining the two is the trick. (A lot of technically brilliant players never succeed in helping you forget you've got a ton of laundry to do.)
Watching him now on the PBS show Woodsongs. "Meet Me At The Creek." A longer piece that gets a little free form after they play the head and then jam on out a bit. Now I know why Mando likes this guy.
