Thread Name: Republican or Conservative folk singers
Subject: Republic/ Conservative Folk Singers
I live in U.S.A. and have always loved folk music - both traditional and contemporary folk music, as well as some folk/rock music.

I don't know about U.K. in regards to this but it seems like most well known folk singers/groups and listeners of folk music here are Democratic in their political beliefs and I guess it has always been that way. I don't know if there are any well known folk artists around who are Republicans or just more conservative in their political choices or not. I know from attending concerts over the years of many well known folk artists/groups that the audience too seems to be made up of more liberal people which is no surprise - but I have been wondering if there are any conservative (or willing to admit to being so) and listeners of folk music who (attend concerts, etc.)who are Republicans?
