Smile Folk Music? - September 27th 2009, 12:50 PM

Hiiiii

So, I was wondering...
Anyone on here know of any good folk bands?
it's just that my friend needs to listen to folk music for her A Level music course and I dunno what to recommend for her to listen to xD

Really I've only heard of Iron & Wine and I don't even know if they're folk xD

Help would be appreciated.
xxxxx

There's a comedy band from around here called the Arrogant Worms. Apparently some of their music is folk.

I love Iron&Wine...
Also I love Bon Iver... does that class as folk?
I'll try and think up some more at some point in time

This list is pretty solid.
Out of that list your friend should definitely check out Neutral Milk Hotel, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Nick Drake, Simon & Garfunkel, Grizzly Bear, and Iron & Wine.

Now for some input from a morris dancer =p

No one seems to be mentioning proper folk to be honest, but there are some good, modern bands.

I reccomend Bellowhead and Kerfuffle! They're really good bands.
