Hello guys, I found some viking folk videos posted by Nihilist at another thread and I was amazed. That's why I decided to start a thread to post folk music from different parts of the world, you can post from your country or maybe from any country that you like.

I don't like our folklore too much but I'll share it..

Here is a more modern British Folk musician by the name of Nick Drake. He inspires a lot of Opeth's music. It is sad, but he took his own life on 25 November 1974 (aged 26).



Here is some Neofolk:



And I always have to include this, but here is some more Scandinavian Folk. This song was written by a Black Metal band Named Enslaved.

Well for American Folk its all over the place, bluesy, jazzy, lots of mixture, but I love this guy who kind of captures that bluesy/ folk feel.

Folk music from Romania? biggrin.gif Here we go:



This is the soulful music that my people used to play in the past...the images are taken from the Revolution in 1989 which dethroned the communist regime.

The 'Godfather' of Modern English Folk:- Mr Richard Thompson.


Lyrics:-
Said Red Molly to James that's a fine motorbike
A girl could feel special on any such like
Said James to Red Molly, well my hat's off to you
It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952
And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems
Red hair and black leather, my favorite color scheme
And he pulled her on behind
And down to Box Hill they did ride

Said James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right hand
But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man
I've fought with the law since I was seventeen
I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine
Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22
And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you
And if fate should break my stride
Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride

Come down, come down, Red Molly, called Sergeant McRae
For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside
Oh, come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside
When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
But he smiled to see her cry
And said I'll give you my Vincent to ride

Says James, in my opinion, there's nothing in this world
Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do
They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52
He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys
He said I've got no further use for these
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home
And he gave her one last kiss and died
And he gave her his Vincent to ride

A 1952 Vincent black Lightning.

I just discovered this group this morning. I am really liking them so far. I just thought I would share in this thread since it is a relevant topic.
