A folksy confession

I am on the record, as an intemperate youth, suggesting that Folk Music is of the devil. I recant.

In my dotage I am really enjoying alt.country, folk, bluegrass and other music with banjos.

There’s a slight language warning on this clip – well, it’s not slight. It says a bad word starting with f many times. The rest of the album is free of cringeworthy cursing.

I give you. Mumford and Sons.

I’ve also really been enjoying Fionn Regan. But his “Put a Penny in the Slot” video has embedding disabled. So you’ll have to go to YouTube to watch it.

  1. Sarah has spent tonight looking up these guys on iTunes. They're coming to Sydney (and elsewhere) but gig is sold out. Did you see these guys for the first time when we were watching rage?

  2. Thanks for posting this. I love their sound and will certainly check them out.

    Have you ever heard of Bela Fleck? He's known for incorporating the banjo into jazz. He has received 11 Grammy Awards and nominations in more different categories than any other musician.

  1. No, I hadn’t. Which is surprising given they’ve had so many nominations…

    If you haven’t already discovered them – Gomez are also really awesome and fit in this musical genre.
