I recently got into a couple of folk bands like Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, She and Him etc.
I'm looking for suggestions for any similiar bands worth checking out?[/url]
Check out The Black Keys, I have a feeling you'd like them.
In the UK folk types always revere the old sounds of Fairport Convention, Pentangle & the mesmeric Nick Drake....the more modern stuff has a lot of directions...Mike Harding hosts a dedicated folk show on Radio2 (BBC) which you can pick up on the iPlayer online...always lots of good new and older stuff on there.
I used to hate folk, but have found, as I get older, I enjoy it more and more as in it's purest forms I find nothing else relaxes me like it does.
I'm more of an acoustic folk listener...
Kings of Convenience
Iron & Wine
Amos Lee (a bit bluesy)
Also, Nick Drake FTW.
