Welcome to FolkWords - online resource for folk, acoustic and roots music. We look at folk in all its various forms, its influences, how it's developing and why. Through 'Comment' we unravel the intertwining threads of folk music, in 'Reviews' we listen to new albums and artists, and talk to the people that make the music.
Folk music is classified and categorised in varied, strange and often inaccurate ways ... traditional, acoustic, world and roots, nu-folk, electric folk, medieval folk and folk-rock, bluegrass, country and Americana, through progressive folk, neo folk and electronic psych, to punk folk, folk metal and thrash folk ... influences range far and wide, ebb, flow and coalesce to span traditional, new and different.
FolkWords is open-minded, eclectic (without dependence on artificial or pointless definitions) free of advertising, corporate contamination and influence ... and interested in anything that falls under the wider category of folk music.
