Folk music


When thinking about the term ‘folk music’ it is easy to conjure up a picture of morris dancers, wheezy accordions, lone fiddlers, and little folk clubs above pubs where the average age is about 60. But this is only one (very stereotypical) side to folk music; since the folk revival in the 1960s, many artists and bands have sprung up that fuse folk with popular music, who often have younger audiences (Laura Marling and Seth Lakeman are just two examples). Folk music can also be a great springboard for performing and composing projects, and this article incorporates a number of practical activities into a history of English folk music.
