Folk/Acoustic albums

Recommended Posts

I'm always on the look out for new artists/albums in the Folk/Acoustic genres and by that I mean Traditional Folk, Alt Folk, American Folk, Country (not country and western) Indie/Folk and even just Indie as long as it's of an acoustic nature.

Some examples of what I've got in my collection:

Karine Polwart

Laura Marling

Kris Drever

Findlay Napier

The Wailin Jennys

Fink

Alexi Murdoch

Emily Barker

Laura Veirs

Eliza Gilkysen

Suzanne Vega

Reg Meuross

You Are Wolf

So let me know what you recommend for me to try

The guys from what hifi forum know I write a music blog, so this is another reason why I'm always on the hunt for new artists... don't think I'm allowed to advertize it on here, but if you want details PM me.

Some albums that might appeal to your tastes Mac, trying to remember what you like, is these albums which I posted in the thread about 2018 releases I’ve really liked. Not all folk, but some bits here and there 

malena Zavala - aliso, lovely melodies and great female vocal. 

agnes obel - late night tales compilation, lovely eclectic mix of her tastes.

loma - loma, quite original sound.

The new 2018 cowboy Junkies album is good and a lovely folkey track at the end, but it’s more of a rock sound than folk.

Must admit, they're a band I've known about for a long time, but for some reason, never looked into them, so thanks for giving me a nudge

Thanks for these... I saw Kate Walsh a few years ago when she was promoting her last album The Real Thing... real pity she's given it all up.

Don't know A J Roche, but like all the others, will check it out.

Keep them coming, this is great.

Been listening to the last Anna and Elizabeth album "The Invisible Comes to us" very different from their debut self titled record... it's growing on me.

A few noteable new rleases coming up in the next few weeks:

Jackie Oates, The Joy of Living

Kitty MacFarlane, The Namer of Clouds

Karine Polwart, Laws of Motion

John Smith, Hummingbird

and Rachael McShane has just released When All is Still with her new band the Cartographers.

Managed to catch that Folk show on Keep it Country TV, quite enjoyed it and found a couple of artists I hadn't heard of, Harbottle and Jonas and Kate Griffin... presenters were a bit irritating though

Lucy Rose is a fine singer. Not quite Folk or Acoustic but a good fusion of the genres with a lovely voice...

Love that album, afraid she's gone pop now.

Highly recommend a band called Mishaped Pearls

I too was a fan of early Lucy Rose, bought that album and eagerly awaited the second which was more electric, more pop and quite disappointing.
