O.K., I did this before w/love songs, and what a response! Now I want to know who's your favorite artist and why. Don't be shy! And don't be afraid to name several. I myself would have to say for a female singer it would be Joan Baez, and for a male singer it would be Don McClean. What do you think?

Bill Schustik. He always gives a history or background of the song. If you have a chance to catch him, please do. He has a program of Civil War, old time, etc. songs, and plays multiple instruments. He has played in Lincoln Center, summers on the Shenendoah (a teaching sailing ship) with 5-graders, and in the Sarasota, Fla area.

Well I got in on the ground floor here. Guess we just want to see how many people agree with us - so we can feel good about our choices. Nothing wrong with that - affirmation is good for the ....uhm......ego.

I love so many artists and they have such different and distinct niches, not to mention unique sounds, that a list of several dozen would be easier than one (or even six).

In over thirty years I have not grown tired of hearing Ian and Sylvia. I know many will agree.

The Limelighters..... with Glen Yarborough. He has a glorious voice and their harmonies......

Third and last...Though I could name so many more.....Peter Paul and Mary. They have been creating wonderful sounds for a long time and for me at least have avoided going stale.

So, nothing controversial or very esoteric here....now who's got the guts to jump on my band wagon???

Best folk singer? Me, of course, 'cause I'd rather sing than listen. This kinda music is participatory, it's doing music, not lay back and let it come to you.

Now, the folks whose singing I like to learn from, that's another story!

I like this one, mainly 'cause I may hear about someone I don't know and might like. Keep 'em coming please. As for me, I like different folks for different reasons. Gordon Bok for his voice and his taste, Peter Paul and Mary and the Weavers for their harmonies and energy, Pete Seegerr, because he's Pete (I guess he gets in there twice because of the Weavers) John McCutchin because he writes well, and he's a lot of fun in performance, Inti Illmani because they make me practically dance in my seat, Michael Cooney, because he led one of the best sing alongs I've ever heard, John Roberts and Tony Barrand because I Love those harmonies, Paul Simon because he also writes real good, etc. etc. etc.

Hmmm, I'm a relatively new folkie, and am not really familiar with a lot of singers. One singer I do like, although I don't know if you'd call her a folk singer in the truest sense, is Lorena McKennitt. She has one of the prettiest voices I've ever heard. I also like Connie Dover.

I got sucked into this one again. 'Best' is such a subjective term, but when we get over the semantic discussion it is a good forum for finding out 'favorites' and for getting some names out for others to see and eventually hear. Spider John Koerner has been a long time favorite for someone who takes the standard folk repertoire and really interprets it. Also, I just heeard Geoff Muldaur's recent CD. It seems these old folkies just get better and better.

If I had only enough time left on earth to listen to four albums, they would be:

1. Any Steve Gillette w/ Cindy. "Texas and Tennessee" is the epitome of "folk" !!

2. Allen Damron, specifically, "35 Years", a true Texas treasure.

3. Gordon Lightfoot, again any of the numerous he has done.

4. Ian and Sylvia, specifically, "Northern Journey"

Hope I have a lot more time left!

Pete Seeger is clearly the best, because of his ability to describe, define and demonstrate the "folk process", many remarks in this column refer to other folk singers, who are all enjoyable to listen to, and to see perform...but the best, Pete!

For those new to folk music I would suggest you could try and find recordings of the following artists displaying different styles and make up your own mind. I'm afraid my opinion changes daily and subsequently I don't have a favourite I love them all

not in any particular order:

James Keelaghan,Stan Rogers From Canada

Jez Lowe, Nick Jones,Vin Garbutt, Martin Carthy From England

Christy Moore, Andy Irvine, From Ireland

John Schumann, Eric Bogle From Australia.

The list could go on, but I suggest you start there and enjoy the experience.

Best folk singers..hmmmmmmmmmmm....well Group with all round Sh**kicking harmonies and knowledge of the Tradition it's got to be the Watersons. Live performer with sheer energy for me is Rory McLeod...Martin Carthy simply for being soo good that he's still around performing, Dick Gaughan cos he writes the best songs and is sincere. Here in Brazil there are so many folk musicians that I couldn't even begin to list who's the best.

Best Traditional Singer... either Almeda Riddle or Joe Heaney

Best Singer-Songwriter... Ewan MacColl

Best Old Warhorse... Lou Killen

Best Local Folk Singer Who Will Never Be World Famous... Jan Christensen of Brooklyn. He has a list of songs pasted to his guitar that's so long and in the smallest print that it stretches all around the sides from top to bottom. The songs are a wonderful eclectic mix: traditional, newly composed, self composed, international, etc. and, remarkably, he knows them all. No more than a pleasant voice, very solid, nothing fancy on the guitar but a genuinely lovely man who has no shirt on his back because he gave it away many years ago.

John Prine is a wonderful performer

Billy Bragg does a great job with Wilco on the album Walt Whitman's Daughter

My men's vote goes to Lee Monroe Presnell ("Uncle Monroe") of Beech Mountain, North Carolina. Eighty-six when I recorded him, and still a masterful singer with all the subtle nuances of a great traditional artist.

Jeannie Robertson, superb ballad singer from Aberdeen, Scotland, would get my women's vote. Jeannie had an incredible "presence" and a powerful delivery, together with a great repertoire -- muckle ballads to bawdy songs.

But I have to admit I've always wanted to be Frank Proffitt when I grow up.

First name that came to mind was Helen Schneyer. Then had to give equal time to Jean Redpath, Lisa Neustadt, Ray Fisher, and Lisa Null. All of these women have powerful, individualistic voices and styles. But they are less concerned with their own singing style than with conveying the meaning and feeling of the song. Most of them have huge repertoires of traditional music.

For men, my first thought was Dwayne Thorpe. Dwayne is a college professor who sings "Zebra Dun" like he really means it. Wide range of material, fine guitar work, a very expressive and versatile voice, great on both old-timey and blues. I only know one album that he's done, darn it. Lou Killen is superb, Allan Damron is wonderful, can we name our top twenty? Or top forty?

Allen Damron
Our very own Art
Tom Paxton
Me, and everyone above who said "ME"
Dick Greenhaus
Vance Gilbert
Cheryl Wheeler and so on and so on.

Although I don't like the "best" concept, I have enjoyed Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens and of course Bob Dylan, I'm not sure that I saw their names earlier in this thread.

If the question is who is the best we know personally, I give unbiased nod to Susan Latimer. Okay, she's my sister but she has performed at the Mariposa and Eaglewood festivals in Ontario and writes very interesting material founded in her classical training and her exposure to Blues, Celtic and Bluegrass.

Rick mentioned Norm Hacking, I saw him when Susan was performing at the Eaglewood festival a few years ago and was very impressed with him and his material.

It often depends on my mood. However, I've always liked Stan Rogers, Archie Fisher, Chris Foster, Nic Jones, and Maddy Prior. Pam Morgan and Anita Best from Newfoundland are also pretty good.

Recently I've discovered Kate Rusby, a fine singer barely in her twenties who comes from the same part of the world as my paternal grandfather. I've purchased Hourglass, and just today ordered some of her other CD's which are not available in Canada. She seems to have never toured North America, and I am told that one of the reasons is that she has a fear of flying. I'd love to see her in a place like The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Of the old timers, A. L. Lloyd, Ewan McCall, Woody Guthrie, and Leadbelly.

Of bands there are too many to list.

you all have clouded my mind with so many obvious choices...(Redpath, MacColl, Robertson, Fisher, etc...)..and I agree with Ferrara..*Dwayne Thorpe*, whom I get to hear in person every year or so!..this man takes songe we all know and seldom sing and brings them to life! About 3 times in my life I have had the hair stood up on the back of my neck listening to music...and one was the first time I heard Dwayne Thorpe sing "Tenting Tonight"..and there is a local woman whom most of you have never heard of..Janice Cole, who has moved me SO many times singing "Ned of the Hill", "Grey Funnel Line", "Fiddler's Green", the Scottish "Country Lassie", "Kitchen Man"...etc......once, after a concert where David Jones was part of a group, there was a 'singaround' for the audience. Part way into it, Janice launched into "Tramp On the Street"...and before she finished the first verse, David Jones who had been busy with the 'after the concert' business, came back to the auditorium and stood transfixed till it was over...and then applauded her in the most gracious way I have seen!..

and I'll bet YOU all know some people yourselves that will never be 'famous'...but maybe should have been...

now I am going to go thumb thru my records and see who I have missed...
