    Not folk metal, I'm talking about just plain ol' fiddles and shit.

    I'm a huge fan of Loituma and Kirjava Lintu. Unfortunately it's pretty hard for me to find folk that I actually like. Any reccomendations?

    Not really a big fan of folk but I do like Linda Perhacs. Great psychedelic-folk from the 70s. Unfortunatly, she only put out one album.

    Perhacs sounds good.
    I like early Clannad, the pogues and the dubliners. Enough fiddle and flute there. Check out myspace and youtube for songs.

    Yeah, The Pogues and The Dubliners is certainly not a bad place to look. I play guitar and banjo in a folk group, it's fun.

    In the contemporary ethnic music Trio "4th Race", three unusual musicians meet to search musical paths besides the mainstream. The Italien Mandola meets the Iranian Tonbak, the South-Indian Morsang meets the Bulgarian Gaida.

    Corvus Corax, Saltatio Mortis, Tanzwut, Schandmaul..my favourites. Especially Schandmaul. Corvus Corax is right on Folk..pure Folk. Medieval Folk..should watch their vids on youtube. There is one short track of theirs called Saltatio Mortis AD Mm..that is nice.
