Rob Naylor Young Audiences - Trad Folk V Folk Rock (152* d) RE: Young Audiences - Trad Folk V Folk Rock 08 Feb 19

Guest: Surely shouldn't be too hard to give us say 10 examples of all these great folk rock bands around in 2019 ?
Is that too much to ask ? Please ?

Dave the Gnome's list contains a fair few bands that a re a bit long in the tooth. A list of just ten (from many) more recently formed bands, off the top of my head:

Gilmore and Roberts
Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys
Midnight Skyracer
MG Boulter
The Willows
Emily Askew Band
Dovetail Trio
Cardboard Fox

There are loads more out there, that's just off the top of my head.

Re DtG's Wiki quote: The number, and mainstream recognition, of electric folk groups is lower in the 21st century than it was in the late 20th.

They may not have the "mainstream recognition" of say Steeleye or Fairport in their heyday but I'd argue that the number is no lower this century than it was last. Their standard of musicianship is very high, and they regularly fill reasonably-sized venues.
