Chunky Sweaters, Beards And Real Ale

Medieval folk, neo-folk, 60's folk revival, prog folk, music that was never fashionable, sweet voiced ladies and the Knights Who Say Ni.
1The Pentangle
Basket Of Light


Medievally folky Brits, great old album, nice girlie singing and harmonies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAlmxT9iNgs
2Steeleye Span
A Parcel of Rogues


Mix of medieval sounds and trad folk, 60s folk revival group, maybe one of the most
unfashionable things to like in the history of music apart from Meatloaf.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_so4yBFKGs
3Spirogyra
St. Radigunds


Classic bleak and dark prog folk from long long ago when the world was dark and bleak.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwrsl8pzoYQ
4Flor de Loto
Madre Tierra


Peruvian band, prog folk, one for Tull fans, great album apart from some annoying pan-
pipes here and there
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q-oZD8aRMU
5North Sea Radio Orchestra
I a moon


Brilliant album, prog folk with a bit of acoustic blues thrown in, female vocals. If Aimee
Mann and Kate Bush had lesbian sex and somehow one of them got pregnant and had a
daughter she would sing like this.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hp3yViKCLo
6Maddy Prior
Seven for Old England


Steeleye Span vocalist, she's got a lovely voice but maybe she'd just smoked a few
cigars in the vid, trad folk.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl3xFnoDZ_I
7Judy Dyble
Talking with Strangers


Ex-Fairport Convention vocalist, nice tunes, her husband was on Top Cat.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHXCH2Zl_s0
8Fairport Convention
What we did on our holidays


Can't leave this lot out.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbnLVvAJrec
9John Renbourn
The lady and the unicorn


Brilliant acoustic folk from Pentangle band member.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_WGOwoYEkY
10Amazing Blondel
Evensong


Flutey trad folk, can't decide if its actually really awful.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mvktx7cNHSo
11Gryphon
Red Queen To Gryphon Three


Hoary old prog folk classic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jjew5XPfVSs
12Ripaille
La Vieille Que Lon Brula


Progressive folk with early music ambience.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49sdpMyGV5o
13Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock
Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock


Proggy mostly medieval melodies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab5mGEFMeas
14Estampie
Signum


Soundtrack for any film about Henry 8th that isn't some glossy soap opera shite like
The Tudors.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gb3bleMxCKs
15Blackmore's Night
Shadow of the Moon


Cheesy renaissance pop-rock, well a bit shit really but I'd certainly shaft his wife.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArOS_WsT1tw
16Circulus
The Lick on the Tip of an Envelope Yet to be Sent


Bright and splunky plunky sound with nice female vocals.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLnzhdshI7Y
17Corvus Corax
Inter Deum et Diabolum


Early music vibe, chants in courtyards under grey skies, could pass as a soundtrack to
a period piece B-movie about castles, peasants, knights and stuff like that.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha6gWkY6__g
18 Avalon Rising
Avalon Rising


Celtic folk, a couple of annoying jiggy songs but great overall.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulw1T73e4fA
19 Morrigan
Hidden Agenda


Radio friendly folk, not bad.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKG-KXvtx5c
20Richard Thompson
Mock Tudor


Any folk list needs Richard Thompson, folk rock legend and twangy guitar god.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC0895wHLH0
21Vashti Bunyan
Just Another Diamond Day


Beautiful, timeless.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwSTf_sekv4
22Strawbs
From the Witchwood


The most medievally folky album they did.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XlT1jlD-xU
23iamthemorning

One of the best albums of 2012, classical indie folk from Russia. Well not really folk
but I don't care i'll put it here anyway.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9olJsnyDcMc
24Los Jaivas
Alturas de Machu Picchu


Considered as a bit of an old classic, Chilean prog-folk group.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExGOc5dVY10
25Itoiz
Itoiz


Electric/acoustic jazzy prog folk, pretty good.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peAkJbLI3rg
26Ragnarok (SWE)
Ragnarok


Laid back proggy folk, chill music.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1iOabijLKs
27Kim Robertson
Treasures of the Celtic Harp


A woman playing a harp a lot.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxDy35AF8bs
28Clannad
Legend


Nice album, spoilt by 80s synths a bit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSx4azJWgMI
29Sandy Denny
The North Star Grassman and the Ravens


Sweet folky tunes from ex-Fairport convention singer.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9RX1b0R0LQ&feature=kp
