Popular Music Authenticity Part 2

Prompted by a recent report into the perceived authenticity of Seasick Steve, I have been prompted to think about the ways in  which authenticity resonates both positively and negatively with other artists. So, starting with Seasick Steve himself, here is a collection of videos that I will be discussing with some of my post grad students this week. My question, how do they resonate both positively and negatively with notion of authenticity? This will be elaborated on next week, but I suggest firstly jotting down what you consider to be authentic, then compare these notions with the videos below.
