Folk Music ~ A Trilogy

Re-posted from Lady Barefoot Baroness  [ Original post date 6 October 2012]\

” It’s like finding home in an old folk song that you’ve never heard, still you know every word. And for sure you can sing a long.”    ~  unknown

It is so true that I am 60’s music fan. I am also a Folk Artist first. Folk art in all ways, the music, the visual arts & the stories. The music is what I know like I know my right hand. I know nothing like it any better. It is what I was raised on.  Soy fed Folk-girl.

Ancient Thoughts Told Many Ways Today

A folk music fan, from birth I think. The stories told generation after generation are stories I know also like my right hand. And my left too. It was my passion for so many years and  I am experiencing a resurgence of that passion today. Although with Folk you are never that far away.

Today there are new bands, new artists, new songs, and Folk music is alive and well. The message still the same. How wonderfully comforting and at the same time disturbing this is.  Today these new artists are keeping the entire movement alive and well in 2013. I think that is worth celebrating.

So just in case you have missed either of these three bands I want to feature their music here. You may like what you hear, and you may not. But I promise you that the messages are ones that you will have no problem feeling an allegiance with.

Listening to these bands perform their music outside, acoustically without the bells and whistles of a studio session is brilliant, raw, and pure forms of their sounds…their music..their voices… and most assuredly their harmonies.

I am not always a fan of new/current music. But I believe we should always be growing & learning.

I have been taught this music & I know what I like. I also know what sounds move this soul of mine,

This is some of that.  The healing begins.
