Folk Rock

folk rock cover

A list of personal favorite performers that could fit into the folk rock category:

         Al Stewart

         Alison Krauss (she could be country, she could be bluegrass, sometimes she's gospel, but she could be folk rock . . . )

         Arlo Guthrie

         The Band

         Beach Boys

         Bob Dylan

         Bonnie Raitt (some would argue with this, and she is probably more bluesy than folk . . . )

         Bruce Cockburn

         Bruce Springsteen (this could be a surprise, even to Springsteen . . . )

         Buffalo Springfield


         Cat Stevens

         Creedence Clearwater Revival

         Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young



         Emmylou Harris (what was said about Alison Krauss, above, applies here also . . . )

         Enya (more New Age, also Celtic, but think about it . . . )

         Gillian Welch

         Gordon Lightfoot

         Grateful Dead (think the American Beauty album, not necessarily Live Dead . . . )

         Indigo Girls

         J D Souther

         Jackson Browne

         James Taylor

         Jennifer Warnes


         Jimmy Buffett (sort of . . . )

         Joan Baez

         John Denver

         John Prine

         Joni Mitchell

         Judy Collins

         Juice Newton (maybe more country than folk . . . )

         Linda Ronstadt (some songs, at least . . . )

         Loviní Spoonful

         Mamas & The Papas


         Neil Young

         Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

         Norah Jones (uncategorizable, maybe jazzy, but still . . . )

         Old Crow Medicine Show

         Peter, Paul & Mary

         Rosanne Cash (she's not really country, and she's so great every genre should try to claim her . . . )

         Simon & Garfunkel


         Van Morrison (also uncategorizable, or maybe fits in tons of categories . . . )
