As much as my favourite genres are grunge, alternative, punk and hard-rock, I do love myself a bit of folk rock

Folk — I loves it I tell thee ... the British Folkrock scene from the late-1960s and early-1970s left a legacy of some fantastic music, and it opened up a world of extraordinarily talented musicians. Sandy Denny has a very high and well-deserved ranking on that list of my favourite female singer, sure she barely lived up to the streetwise poetry of Johnette Napolitano, although Denny’s mournful yet reflective folk singing connected infinitely with those freezing winter nights where you find yourself very much pondering the question “Who Knows Where the Time Goes”? Her material with the Fairport Convention and that performed solo and with Fotheringay makes for a body of work that I think very, very positively of indeed. For definite, that era left an endowment of some great bands to future generations, including Lindisfarne — who are very local to me — the Pentangle, Ten Years After, Steeleye Span, the Strawbs.. Led Zeppelin often were cast under the heading of being a hard-rock band although to contrast, I feel that the British folk scene suited them more at least some of the time, Denny gave BVs on “Battle of Evermore” and Zeps music would never have been what it was without its plethora of acoustic elements.
It is widely known that Neil Young, the godfather of Grunge, connected quite profoundly with me... I have detailed his brilliance elsewhere however... you know the story there.
Nico from VU, apparently, her solo stuff is a rather folky affair, so that will be worth a listen.
Woody Guthrie was outstanding— you rarely hear guitar music from the 1940s, but there he was strumming away with a passion, “that old dust storm, killed my family, but it cant kill me boys, no it cant kill me”
It's hard to start things over, You can feel the fire around us, All the time. It's still unfashionable to beleive in principles.

Joey's 500th post special, have some music to celebrate this momentous occasion ;)
--
Emmylou Harris is a country singer who I have, in recent days, become entwined with -- she's a wonderful guitar player and her vocals put a gorgeous female twist on country, both carrying on the legacy of others, and in bringing the world to connect her innermost feelings.
