Great folk music/bands

So, over the last year or two Iíve found myself really drawn to a lot of folk. Iíve always liked it, but lately I find myself seeking it out more.

I thought I should create a thread to seek out suggestions from anyone else down with the folk, while also sharing some of my own. Listening to Taarka right now and digging them quite a bit. What do yíall listen to?

What sort of folk are we talking about? Singer-songwriter, Americana, international folk styles, folk-rock? What are you into?

I like or singer-songwriter and some folk-rock, but this is more whatever your interpretation is and sharing it.

There are no rules here. If it’s folk, talk about it/suggest it.

I’m not big on current folk singer-songwriters, for the most part, but I’ll throw out a few of my classic favorites.

Old-Timey/Folk Blues:

Charley Patton
Son House
Blind Lemon Jefferson
Muddy Waters Plantation Recordings
Lead Belly

And of course it’s hard to get much more classic folk than Woody Guthrie. I’m a particular fan of the Dust Bowl Ballads

Classic 60s Folkies:

Dave Van Ronk
Phil Ochs
Fred Neil
Townes Van Zandt
Odetta
John Fahey

I’ve personally gotten really into the British Folk Revival of the late 60s and early 70s. It started as basically a copy of the Folk/Rock coming out of the American West Coast, but gradually took on more and more quintessentially English characteristics. I’v been borderline obsessed with this music for the last year or so.

Fairport Convention/Sandy Denny/Richard Thompson
Pentangle/Bert Jansch/John Renbourne
Steeleye Span/Martin Carthy
Shirley Collins
Vashti Bunyan
Davy Graham
John Martyn

I’ll add some more contemporary stuff later.

Figured I'd add some links here

I think Todd Snider is a god damn legend. Here's a few to check out
Spoiler:






Jonathan Wilson's first record is a perfect balance of psychedelic folk, some live cuts
