GUEST,HiLo The Ultimate Mudcat Folk and Blues Show (9) RE: The Ultimate Mudcat Folk and Blues Show 07 Sep 16

Hello again, I am sorry, I misread your original post. If you mean folk milestones or recording which brought folk to the attention of the general public, I would have to say that Joan Baez was a great influence in AMerica.
Mary Hamilton by Joan Baez
And who could not credit Pete Seeger
WHere Have All The Flowers Gone by Pete Seeger
And no Doubt at all about Bob Dylan, Imho he changed everyrthing.
The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll by Bob Dylan
John Allan Cameron who brought a celtic tradition off the Island of Cape Breton and into the mainstream.
The Four Marys by John Allan Cameron
In The Uk I would have to say The Watersons
For Pence and Spicy Ale by The Watersons
Frankie Armstrong a huge influence.
The Bonnie Swans by Frankie Armstrong
Martin Carthy a pivotal figure in British folk
High Germany by Martin Carthy

Varous and Sundry
Loreena MacKennit brought much traditional music to public audiences.
The Chieftans..major influence.

Of course we always leave out some hugely important person and our tastes and influences are all different. So each persons list will be different.
An interesting thread, thank you.
