You don't expect a trombone solo in folk music, but Jeb Loy Nichols has always used fun-yet-funky trombone in haunting reggae-tinged songs like "As The Rain". At 2:25 he mutters "Now let it rain..." and trombone ensues.

And his old band Fellow Travellers did a lot of early funk/folk/roots/dub music, like the sparse "Big Mistake" (mostly just drums and trombone... and great lyrics*).

*Well, they got married/
And that was Big Mistake...
