Mervyn Male Folk Singers (28) Male Folk Singers 23 Feb 02

I'm looking for recommendations of male folk singers, especially from the Irish or British Isles folk music tradition.

Back in the early seventies I spent some time learning and playing traditional songs, especially Childe ballads, in Australia. I'm familiar with albums released in the early seventies (Pentangle, Bothy Band, Fairport Convention, Steeleyed Span) but have not kept track of much of the good music released since. For some reason I have lots of albums with female vocalists.... Now I've started taking voice lessons and my teacher wants me to find examples of traditional male singers worth emulating. I'm looking for singers who have both good vocal control, but not at the expense of feeling. I know this is somewhat vague, but I thought I'd give it a try.
