Subject: Sexiest Folksingers Alive
From: High and Lonesome
Date: 06 Mar 00 - 02:30 AM

I know that good singing and great lyrics are what draw all of us to folk music. But what about the poor benighted souls who want some sex appeal in their performers? Who can we point to and say, va va va voom, there is a sexy folk singer? Both male and female suggestions, please, and exactly what you find sexy about them. Keep it clean, though. I want my kids to be able to read this.

Well, if it wasn't for The Bonny Irish Lass aka the FAIR ONE I'd have said that "sexy folksinger" was an oxymoron.

Although the same young lady said she liked the way Andy M Stewart wiggled his hips at the Blue Mountains Folk Festival at the weekend!

Sexiest folksinger? I thought that if a folksinger showed the slightest sign of sex appeal he or she was immediately boxed up and sent off to the nearest commercial studio. A conversation a friend and I had comparing the sex appeal of many of the performers at The Festival of Friends in Hamilton was pre-empted by the young man in the audience in front of us who stood up, removed his shorts, revealed his BRIGHT LIME GREEN nylon underwear, and put on a pair of trousers. I hope he was warmer for it, I know my friend and I were.

I know scads of women who swoon over Jeff Warner and Jeff Davis. It's the charisma. They must exude buckets of pheremones.

Karan Casey has a lot of appeal for men I know, and my husband just adores Ellen Cohn. :-)

I'll probably be branded as a weirdo for saying this, but what I find very attractive in a performer is his/her total immersion in the music. When they practically make love to the song...mmmm-mmmm. Physical attributes pale in comparison. So by example, Michael Ducet, when he is dancing with his fiddle, is pretty irresistable.

HANDS DOWN, for hetero males, would be JENNIFER KIMBALL, the lesser known half of the wonder-duo, "The Story". I sat close to the stage once, and was almost ready to leave my wife (kidding) after watching/hearing her. THE most sexy, heart-breaking 'break' in her voice I've ever heard/seen. She's super-bright and lovely to boot! Long live JK... Patty Larkin's cute/smart too, and she rips on an axe. For you women, check out Garnet Rogers. That is all... -Axe'

I think I just care more about the music. Dolores O'Riordan had it right when she used to play with her back to the audience. She wanted people to concentrate on the music, and not what SHE looked like. Anyone can look good, and I believe that the music and how much of yourself you put into it is more important that physical appearance. But hey, that's just me.

Yep, in 1973 I was captured by a wandering gang of Biker Women. I was first traded for a pair of custom valve covers. Later,through diligent effort on my part, my value had increased to the point where I brought a set of genuine leather saddlebags and a custom flame-painted tank. Contact the Evansville Indiana Chapter of "Cycle Harlots". They still say I was the best boytoy they ever had.

I think the sexiest folk singer to me is local and is unkown - I used to really fancy her. So I vote for Anwen Donovan. She also has a superb voice and is an excellent anglo concertina player. I often wonder why she never became a "name" as IMO, she has more than enough musical tallent for that.

As for J.Davis, **SIGH** ;-) Women seem to be attracted to either one or the other; it was so nice when they were performing together. Besides the fabulous musical and historical content of course...

However, being of the opposite persuasion, I'll second Dougie MacLean, Rory McLeod and Ralph McTell (walls plastered with posters of him in my teens)...how about Paul James (ex Blowzabella)... and then there's the son of one of the McGarrigles - can't remember his name but would probably be accused of cradle snatching (well you can look, can't you?)

Not strictly folk I suppose but I fell in love with Martyn Joseph last Saturday night and he was on stage with Steve Knightley (so 2 for the price of one) :) www.faithfolkanarchy.com But, then again I fell i love with Chris Smither at Sidmouth last year - Yippee he's coming to town in March (UK)! Although - long term infatuation would have to be Richard Thompson: the Sean Connery of Folk as far as I'm concerned!

Can't believe John Kirkpatrick only got one vote in this - somewhere between Mick Jagger and Elvis Presley but with a melodeon on the front - prowling onto the stage and leaping onto the first tune like a lithe, reckless leopard with a shout of "GO!"

(Don't anyone tell John Tams I've just demoted him)

Rod Patterson looks as good as he sings (or at least he did several years back), and I'm surprised no one mentioned him. But looks aren't everything. Sometimes it's the way their hands move when they play that harp (or whatever)like they're making love to it. And if you're going to be strict on singers, definitely it's the ones who sing so that the feeling in the heart really comes out... I've seen musicians who didn't look like much transform completely when under the influence (of the music)... I think that's true whether the observer is male or female-- we mostly respond to something that's deeper than surface considerations--though they are definitely an asset.

Emmylou Harris is one of the sexiest people on the planet.

As other types of music and other eras have been introduced into the discussion, Amy Grant and Bonnie Raitt.

One of the very interesting things about each of those ladies and most singers of folk or country songs who also play guitar is their arms. Waifs cannot cut it. Great legs are nice. Great arms are nicer.

men:
the late John Hartford
Leonard Cohen
...and, of course, Murray MacLeod! ¤;-D
 

for women (in addition to Emmylou, Joan, Tish, etc.:
Alison Krauss
and Marti Seidell (of The Dixie Chicks)  [ Even though the Chicks are commercial C/W artists, a lot of their stuff is pure bluegrass, BTW.]
 
 

And of the Mudcatters I've seen pictured, I'd say Carol C. (now "Carol The Sailor?") would be right up there.

Genie

PS., Someone mentioned above that the sexiest folks may be someone who's pretty much unknown.  My vote would be for a guy named Doug who lives in Seattle, plays 12-string and autoharp (both beautifully), is about 6'2" or so, sounds like Marty Robbins, does a lot of Kate Wolf songs, and is gorgeous.  I'd wager you folks probably know a few unknown folksingers in your local communities who'd also get lots of votes if they were more widely known.

I forgot to mention Leonard Cohen (but someone else did). I ushered for one of his concerts once, stood ten feet away from him. The man exudes presence. Otherwise same criteria as for Chris Smither: self-deprecating humor, intelligence.

In the same category: Richard Thompson
