That's exactly how I feel. The song's really quite good but you get the feeling from the video that they're playing it too much for laughs. shame really.

Nice one.

And this is of course quite astonishing. Again, this really does need to be heard.

This myspace has Judy Collins' "Since you asked", which is another beautiful song that's to her personal credit.

There's a lot to dig through this thread already. I've really enjoyed Tim Buckley and John Martyn.

Edit: And Bridget St. John


Edit Edit: I can't believe I haven't used this opportunity to plug Hayden. I don't know how folk he is, but he's pretty influenced by it. Depends on your definition of folk really.

Trying to keep thoughts short:

Folk music to me means wandering around a field/ pub and seeing things and not really remembering them. Folk music also means any 'traditional' (in the broadest sense) music. I like a lot of English folk, I tend to see a lot of it live this year, but I almost never buy it. There's absolutely nothing wrong with C93/ Pentangle/ Planxty (or whatever) and it can be very enjoyable.

I would like to say, however, that the 'folk music' being talked about in this thread strikes me as one particular strain of folk music - I'd have to include Tuvan Khoomei or Congolese Soukous (itself a misecegenation of r n' r and traditional Congolese stuff) or any number of things. This isn't a criticism, merely an observation. Obviously, the folk music on a message board that's predominantly Anglo-American is going to be (drumroll please) Anglo-American folk music.

Right, so do I have an actual point then? Does it really matter?

You're certainly right about there being an Anglo-American bias on this thread. I only really know that tradition so it would be impossible for me to bring in other ones. However, I do wonder if the world music thread isn't itself a form of folk music thread, but dealing exclusively with music outside of Britain and America.

I'd just like to say thank you all for not mentioning the shiteawful Death In June. Thank you, sweeties.

That Circulus stuff is like the Spinal Tap of Ye Olde Albion Folke.

I was thinking more in terms of The Darkness, but I know what you mean. The annoying thing is that it's not THAT bad a record.

Anyway, lots of mentions for Pentangle, but no clips I think, so here's one:

And while he might've been as much a hindrance as a help long term, so far as the British Folk scene goes, you can't deny the importance of Ewan MacColl:

And in 1966, this moment changed everything:

Richard and Linda Thompson's 'Withered and Died'. Maybe not the happiest of songs, but certainly one of the most beautiful.

Ditto this absolutely amazing performance of 'A Heart Needs a Home' from 1975.

Warning: this song can radically change your life.

"In 1952 Folkways issued Harry Smith's multi-volume Anthology of American Folk Music. The Anthology was comprised entirely of recordings issued between 1927 (the year electronic recording made accurate reproduction possible) and 1932, the period between the realization by the major record companies of distinct regional markets and the Depression's stifling of folk music sales. Released in three volumes of two discs each, the 84 tracks of the anthology are recognized as having been a seminal inspiration for the folk music revival of the 1950s and 1960 (the 1997 reissue by the Smithsonian was embraced with critical acclaim and two Grammy awards). Traditional American music was only one of Smith's musical interests. From the late 1940s, he was a passionate jazz enthusiast, going so far as to create paintings that are note-by-note transcriptions of particular tunes. He spent much of the fifties in the company of jazz pioneers like Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk. Smith's involvement with recording continued into the sixties and seventies as he produced and recorded the first album by the Fugs in 1965. His long term friendships with many of the Beat writers led to the release of Allen Ginsberg's First Blues in 1976 as well as unreleased recordings of Gregory Corso's poetry and Peter Orlovsky's songs. Smith spent part of this era living with groups of Native Americans, and this resulted in his recording the peyote songs of the Kiowa Indians in 1973. "
