I wasn't sure how to word this, but I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of some young musicians creating music that sounds like its from the 70's folk revival?

As an example I would point out Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith.

The stuff they come up with sounds awesome, definitely better than the high pitched girly singing of a lot of so-called "modern folk"

Basically I'm looking for young traddy guys that havent lost the folk sound.

Any help is appreciated, cheers.

I'm translating your message as you're looking for young people who are playing traditional music.

Alasdair Roberts
Steph Hladowski & C Joynes
Kasey & Clayton
Lynched
Cath & Phil Tyler
Stick in the Wheel

Not all of the above are young and many of them have been recording and gigging for a good decade+

My current favorite is Emily Smith of Scotland. I wouldn't say she sounds like the 1970s - she's timeless. Here are some samples:And I'll second Jeri's nomination of Anna & Elizabeth.

The Press Gang out of Portland, Maine. I've known Junior (Chris) Stevens since he played the buttons of his concertina at the Press Room Fri nite session when he was 14 years old. He's only gotten better. The flute player/vocalist is new, and I think he's a great addition.

Elizabeth LaPrelle and Sheila Kay Adams sound like the 70's; the 1870's{or earlier}

Mike Pence, it might help if you named some 70s folk is so we can get an idea of what what you are looking for.

1870s is much more the way to go for folk song.

If we talking the US, then Frank Fairfield and also Blind Boy Paxton (Jerron Paxton). Though 1930s is probably the closer decade in spirit!

Jim Moray learned several songs from my early LP's and made a good job of them as well. Check him out.

"Girly singing" and "so called"

Seems the original poster has a lot in common with '70s attitudes himself...

Try the group Galley Beggar. First album Reformation House (2010) second just called Galley Beggar (undated but 2012 ?), third called Silence and Tears (2015). Seem to me to hit just about the right spot. Some clips on YouTube.
