    Default Folkin' Awesome: Favorite Folk Artists/Singer-Songwriters

    I don't know if there will be much interest in this thread, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

    [YOUTUBE="hk3mAX5xdxo"]Bob Dylan- like a rolling stone[/YOUTUBE]

    [YOUTUBE="kqLssKusGzM"]Josh Ritter- Girl in the war[/YOUTUBE]

    [YOUTUBE="ulKPDPSDNSc"]The Tallest Man On Earth- King of Spain[/YOUTUBE]

    [YOUTUBE="bc9FnnH22LI"]Patty Griffin- Top of the world[/YOUTUBE]

    I tend to listen to current artists, but I'm hoping people will post some older stuff.

    edit: i reailize that "like a rolling stone" is one of Bob's more rock-like songs so I'll post "The Times They Are a-Changin'" as well.

    Vevo has made it hard to track down dylan songs on youtube.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    • Outlaw Social

    I forget the others right now

    This is the song/video that caught me:


    As for Duhks, not sure if I can find anything. I'm not the hugest fan of their recent album.

    Oh I also like Wailin' Jennys.

    Song is actually "Anji". It is not a Stones cover.
