A thread for Folkie type of music, one you remember from your childhood or current ones, all are welcomed, and no hard and fast rules - if you think it’s folkie then this is the thread!

I’ll do a couple to get the ball rolling!

This song so easily could have been number 1 in 1618, timeless words and melodies can never age, so hard to believe it is a contemporary song...




The beautiful and gifted Rachel Sermanni with a gorgeous modern folk song ‘Everything Changes’

Post a Drake song Davie, for the uninitiated!

Here’s an old I remember from years back! Countrified but still a little bit folksy!

Silly Wizzard!!! Happy Days!

4 bird related songs now...

One for sorrow...




A song from 1611 describing a murder victim being eaten...

Sang in Scots (Makin’ Mane means singing a dirge)




Paul and Arts Sparrow...




Donovan was a successful folk signer (I’ll post Donovan later) was our Bob Dylan, he wasn’t as good obviously, but he did teach Paul McCartney how to pluck the guitar for this song, about race relations in the US of A...

Not sure if this is technically "folk".... but it's acoustic. And anyway, it's a favorite song of mine - by Glen Phillips, one of my favorite singers. (You might know him as the lead singer from the 90s band Toad the Wet Sprocket.)
