The word "legenday" is a bit off the mark as is "folk music" regarding Joni Mitchell. Many true folk artists are also songwriters. So if you want an actual honest-to-god legend, a true "folk" artist, and a very good songwriter, who was around long before Joni........Jean Ritchie.

Not an opinion, just the plain truth.

Also........He started out on banjo first and then added fiddle and later guitar. A gentle and very poetic songwriter and a true folk artist as well.......John Hartford is probably not who you're looking for, but he fits the bill.

Well done Jeri. correct. He was given a guitar as a present but his brother pinched it before he could learn so took up the banjo instead- glad he returned to the guitar.
So that is all the correct answers in today- have to come up with a lot hard questions next time.
