    One thread to rule them all, One thread to find them, One thread to bring them all and in the darkness bind them ...

    Recommendations, your favourite artists, titles, thoughts, images, films, books, related topics. Searched up numerous references all over the forum , but this topic deserves its own reading room.

    Listening to this excellent compilation today . I have always loved this genre, was surprised by a lot of rare tracks, never heard Chimera before.

    Sumer Is Icumen In: The Pagan Sound Of British & Irish Folk 1966-1975

    For the kickoff, will set the mood with Paul Giovanni "Corn Rigs And Barley Rigs" from the soundtrack to "The Wicker Man."

    Steeleye Span - Commoners Crown

    A lot of folk, a bit of rock... even Peter Sellers playing ukelele....

    This isn't just one of my favourite folk/rock albums, it would be somewhere among my favourite albums of all time (which warranted is quite a large list)

    The Leaving Of Liverpool

    This is pretty much a classic folk song, and I think it has British and Irish ties...
    So in light of that, the is the Pogues version, which is one of hundreds.

    Nice Thread, OP! :righton:

    Kate Rusby
    Just putting up 1 album cover-art & uploads from same.
    [​IMG]

    She also just released a covers album last year, Hand Me Down.

    - Have a tissue @ the ready if going to take a listen. From Album: Philosophers, Poets & Kings, on which there's also a very tender Don't Go Away, Oasis' cover.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESqH41i0sco - Live version during C-19 lockdown from Kate's home of Don't Go Away.

    Obviously the names of Jansch, Pentangle, Martyn, Nick Drake, Fairport, Fotheringay, Sandy Denny etc should be mentioned. As I suppose those artists are well known around here I recommend this rarity with a beautiful cover.

    Five Penny Piece - Bill and the Concrete Mixer.

    From the place of my birth in the north of England, Lancashire.
    They did do more serious type stuff, but I always loved their humourous little tracks.

    This thread just turned up some real magic, in addition to the great suggestions so far.

    There is a lovely folksinger named Chloe Matharu I discovered several years ago when reading about the mysterious Shelagh McDonald. Matharu came along as she rececently recorded a song by Shelagh on her 2010 debut CD, "Liz's Song." Beautiful record. She has that British folk rock melancholy, just stellar. She has it posted on Bandcamp, full tracks, not samples.

    Next Market Day, by Chloe Matharu's Debut Album



    Then, silence for years til now . . . just looked her up again for this thread - and she just recently posted some youtubes, playing harp and singing , wonderful to have her back!
