American Folk Music has been a part of the popular culture for over 5 decades. The last rush of popularity in a particular kind of singer-songwriter was in the 1990’s/Early 2000’s: Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Amos Lee, Ray Lamontagne, Ani Difranco, Gillian Welch. Since then, up and coming folk musicians and singer songwriters of this caliber are still appearing and creating great music. Basic Folk is a podcast that intends to introduce you to the what’s next in the folk world and give you deeper insight on artists that you might know or are just getting to know. Hosted by me, Cindy Howes, a seasoned curator of music. My intention is to show you a brand of folk music that you might not know.
