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.
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.
St. Radigunds

Classic bleak and dark prog folk from long long ago when the world was dark and bleak.
4Flor de Loto
Madre Tierra

Peruvian band, prog folk, one for Tull fans, great album apart from some annoying pan-
pipes here and there
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.
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.
7Judy Dyble
Talking with Strangers

Ex-Fairport Convention vocalist, nice tunes, her husband was on Top Cat.
8Fairport Convention
What we did on our holidays

Can't leave this lot out.
9John Renbourn
The lady and the unicorn

Brilliant acoustic folk from Pentangle band member.
10Amazing Blondel

Flutey trad folk, can't decide if its actually really awful.
Red Queen To Gryphon Three

Hoary old prog folk classic.
La Vieille Que Lon Brula

Progressive folk with early music ambience.
13Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock
Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock

Proggy mostly medieval melodies.

Soundtrack for any film about Henry 8th that isn't some glossy soap opera shite like
The Tudors.
15Blackmore's Night
Shadow of the Moon

Cheesy renaissance pop-rock, well a bit shit really but I'd certainly shaft his wife.
The Lick on the Tip of an Envelope Yet to be Sent

Bright and splunky plunky sound with nice female vocals.
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.
18 Avalon Rising
Avalon Rising

Celtic folk, a couple of annoying jiggy songs but great overall.
19 Morrigan
Hidden Agenda

Radio friendly folk, not bad.
20Richard Thompson
Mock Tudor

Any folk list needs Richard Thompson, folk rock legend and twangy guitar god.
21Vashti Bunyan
Just Another Diamond Day

Beautiful, timeless.
From the Witchwood

The most medievally folky album they did.

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.
24Los Jaivas
Alturas de Machu Picchu

Considered as a bit of an old classic, Chilean prog-folk group.

Electric/acoustic jazzy prog folk, pretty good.
26Ragnarok (SWE)

Laid back proggy folk, chill music.
27Kim Robertson
Treasures of the Celtic Harp

A woman playing a harp a lot.

Nice album, spoilt by 80s synths a bit.
29Sandy Denny
The North Star Grassman and the Ravens

Sweet folky tunes from ex-Fairport convention singer.
30Monty Python
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
