Sheran's Wiki entry

"Sheeran" might have worked better.

Not one single reference top him being linked to folk

So look harder. Is "the Parting Glass" not a folksong?

Like Ewan MacColl, some of his songs are more folky than others, and he seems to be getting more interested in traditional material as time goes on. I doubt he's ever gone as far from tradition as MacColl did with that godawful schlocky piece of Cole Porter pastiche "The First Time Ever". (Come to think of it, "Dirty Old Town" is basically American too - the tune might be straight out of Vernon Dalhart).
