I would say my second favorite genre is Baroque music.

Soul (which, for my own purposes and feel free to bicker, means post-rock'n'roll & pre-hip-hop black American popular music, including Motown!!).

I lump bluegrass, prewar acoustic blues and folk into an "Americana" basket. After that it's rock and roll.

A broad mix of classical music, including opera and early music (Baroque, Renaissance, earlier).

Ii'm wit Smedley on soul, except I don't see how it can be characterized as post-rock'n'roll--post-50's, yes.

Doesn't matter what you wear, you can't but be improved by a funky band with a funky groove. I mean, the Funk Brothers...there was a groove you could live your entire life in!

At the moment, when I'm not listening to traditional songs, I'm mostly listening to either Beirut or Scott Walker, neither of whom fit neatly into a genre. I have got a definite weakness for 90s ambient/electronica/chillout/whatever* - KLF, Orb, Underworld (with Darren), FSOL/AmAnd, Sabres, Leftfield etc.

*Actually what you call the genre is a bit of a sore point - I stopped buying that stuff when I couldn't find it in the record shop any more because I couldn't tell which rack I should be looking in. Many years later, ironically, I've got the opposite problem with trad (in the same record shop) - one huge rack of alt-folk, nu-folk, wyrd folk, Americana ect ect and no way of finding anything trad unless you look for an artist by name.

Beirut is/are wonderful. 'Postcards from Italy' is one of the best songs of this century.

I'd say folk was maybe my 20th favourite - after experimental, free improv, prog, rock n' roll, psychedelic, hip-hop, drum & bass, medieval, Spanish renaissance, early classical, baroque, tertius auris, surf, doo-wop, free jazz, jazz, assorted ethnomusicology, 1920's English & American dance band music, exotica, Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western & Italian Gangster movie scores, etc. etc.

Although I'm an English nationalist who prefers folk, I'll be watching the Classical Brit Awards tonight at 10.35 pm, ITV1.

Funny that I missed the OP was from our Wavy friend, openly proclaiming (yet again) his English Nationalism despite being of the opinion that England is somehow less English than it was 50 years ago. Similar feelings are emerging on another thread (see HERE) although there I get the impression the OP'er feels the cut off point for Englishness was some 893 years earlier. So what's the grief this time, WAV? It is with the word Brit or is it un-English Classical Music? Or maybe it's the absence of Piobaireachd which is, after all, the only truly indigenous classical music of these British Isles.

I don't watch the CB awards as a rule, but the one time I did I heard Cecilia Bartoli singing Vivaldi's Anch'il mar par che Sommerga which blew my fucking mind. Still does!

if you play bodhran then try playing to a bit of upbeat reggae it's amazing how well it fits. you can't beat a bit of head bobbing reggae.

How could I forget reggae when I've been listening to Augustus Pablo, African Head Charge & early Burning Spear (Studio 1!) all week! Add it to the list!

Which makes folk my - er - 21st favourite, unless of course we're using the Horse Definition here, which I don't suppose we are.

That's good to know, S. Further to, and in accordance with, my opening post, I also really like traditional English hymn singing.

Impossible to make a pecking order of musical styles. Blues figures highly, Robert Johnson, Son House, Blind Willy McTell, the country music of Clarence Ashley, Roscoe Holcomb right up to Gillian Welch, Soul RnB to Funk, Modern classical from Harrison Birtwistle to serial music, early music, light music (big Eric Coates fan), psychadelia and even those prog rockers whose concerts I slept through first time around. Not enough fundamental modern folk artists performing now, those visceral hair on the neck voices, so much is musical virtuosity or political rants.

I lump the genres I actively play (folk, bluegrass, Celtic, old-time, swing) under one umbrella. I don't play favorites among them. My favorite genre that I don't play is jam band music.

My second favorite is a three-way tie between blues, progressive rock, and medieval.
