Thread Name: love the young people writing folk
Subject: RE: love the young people writing folk
Having not got very far down the list of replies before seeing "that CAN'T be folk music - she wrote it herself" I feel that I must insist that it IS folk music!!!!!!!!

Songs written in the traditional way!! Would you say songs by Bellowhead or Eliza Carthy or the gorgeous Seth Lakeman were NOT folk?! GAH ... is all I can say.

And also add, she's lovely, very modern sounding voice like Candice Night (blackmore's night) and I wish I could play the guitar. It's a bit difficult to sing and play the flute at the same time ... oh well.
