Thread Name: Types of folk music you like or dislike
Subject: RE: Types of folk music you like or dislike
I've enjoyed many on this list: Planxty, Mike Harding, Bellowhead, Oyster Band (have on vinyl somewhere) also I like instrumental material eg Katherine Tickell, Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, 'folk guitar' eg when v young I saw and liked Bert Jansch (who reached a young me in the way a source singer could never have done, same for Fairport and Steeleye Span). I fully admit to enjoying a good go of Wild Rover with table banging, it is fun and a social event and anybody who looks down on this is possibly what they call up themselves as far as I am concerned (though who am I to talk). I have enjoyed and played with Morris (melodeon, Oyster Girl, Staten Island, British Grenadiers etc) but it was the fun of dressing up and the rhythms of the clogs as much as anything else. Not much for the hanky waving stuff. Also some Cajun music in the past.
