Thread Name: LGBT+ Folk Songs and Musicians?
Subject: RE: LGBT+ Folk Songs and Musicians?
Hey all, thanks for so many great suggestions!
In terms of who I'm familiar with, I came across Louisa Killen quite recently and really love her music. She had a beautiful voice. I also know of Peggy Seeger, Grace Petrie, O'Hooley and Tidow. I have come across others on the more singer-songwriter, pop, and indie side of things, but that's often not so much to my taste (I like more traditional music, or music with a bit of a distinctive character). Hence the thread.
Re. Jim on gender not mattering: it can matter to see people like yourself being accepted within a space, and it's good to connect with singers/musicians on that level too.
If anyone knows of any (traditional) folk songs with LGBT+ characters that would be particularly exciting for me! So far I can't think of one!
