    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.

    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.
