Thread for folk music. Folk from anywhere on earth. Local stylings, local lore.

Folk is strictly defined as music passed on by oral tradition. I'll fail to be a douche just this once and accept anything that simply sounds folk. Just no acoustic covers of Clocks like what I heard tonight please.

In the immortal words of hbk487, "ill start".

Not sure if this one should be in this thread but I couldn't find a more apt place for it and didn't think a festival bands of the 90's thread would get much interest. Anyway hope you enjoy it.

Aye I'm sure that counts!

I love Robbie Basho so much. His approach and mix of raw but extremely proficient fingerpicking and singing has stayed with me since I first listened to him. I still play his music every week, usually several times a week. I fell for him in a big way.

A Leadbelly cover may be stretching the oral tradition a little
