25 Awesome Folk Singers and Groups

Folk music’s been around forever but made its biggest splash during the 1960s and 1970s. It’s way different from anything you hear pop music-wise these days because music now has a lot of techno-gadgetry thrown in the mix and folk music is all about the voice and the lyrics with minimal instrument accompaniment. This list shows some of the most talented and influential performers of the music from today and yesterday. The photo is of the Carolina Chocolate Drops who aren't on this particular list but who are making a name for themselves as modern folk musicians.
