I play with a folk band at my school (recorder!) and have really got into folk music in the last couple of years. I love dancing at ceilidhs and just having a great time! My music tastes have become very folk-rock orientated. Love Seth Lakeman and have seen him live 3x and met him too - before he was really famous he played in our local record shop!

Nancy Kerr and James Fagan are fantastic, and you can't forget the Watersons!

I can't believe it took 5 pages to mention Bellowhead. They are one of my favourite bands. My mum loves them too so we're going to see them in November. It's going to be EPIC! I've seen them twice and it's been superb both times. Very awesome band!

I like Noah and the Whale but they're a mix of indie blue and bluegrass.
