Lately I have been listening to a lot of folk music from the 1960's, 1970's, and even some artists from the past decade that are just as good. In this hectic time of the year when finals are arriving I need to listen to some tunes that are soft, beautiful, relaxing, and yet have a lot of depth. I think that my Canadian Poetry and Romanticism classes have had quite an affect on me this semester in that I am inspired by anything nature and whimsical oriented. Here are some of my favourite folk artists:
Marianne Faithfull - This Little Bird
Sibylle Baier - Forget About
This incredibly talented woman from Germany privately recorded fourteen of her own tracks from 1970-1973 without ever exposing them to the world. Only in 2006 was it released thanks to the efforts of her son.
Mariee Sioux - Wild Eyes
Marissa Nadler - Thinking of You
Train Song - Vashti Bunyan
