anybody know any of the above that i may not have heard of? off the radar and up and coming please....
no surpise is quality
I saw this wee guy Aaron Wright in Edinburgh recently and he was the best folk indie kid I have seen in years. Also Ross Clark from Glasgow is good. Hope they will make a name for themselves outside Scotland soon.
Have opened for Mr. Flynn and quite good...
absolutely MADE my Camden Crawl this year - amazing stuff
Also Thom Stone! Forgot about that guy.
I knew there'd be people in here praising the Mumfords :D
They played one of his songs on The Inbetweeners anyway.
second that, and third and fourth it too. Godwits are sublime.
New single on iTunes today:
In fact it is indeed that one of The Inbetweeners.
Angus & Julia Stone have been getting a lot of attention recently...
(from me at least ;))
Oh and that Lightspeed Champion.
I didn't see 'British'
Broadcast 2000 are brilliant, no one seems to have heard of them, even though one of their songs is on an ad.
Phil Campbell is quite good. Really enjoying his new album.
Think they supported Jonnyn Flynn actually.
I guess it's more anti-folk though, whatever that is.
Saw them with the Wave Pictures in support... Let's just say the Wave Pictures saved the night.
noah and the whale and loved them
haven't heard much of him since his debut last year though...
He does a quality line in self-penned murder ballads, uke strums, old show tunes and George Formby covers...
especially Fife Kills records. My Kappa Roots, Eagleowl etc...yas!
I'm so off the radar I don't even have a name, let alone a Myspace. I might play a gig one day, but I'm afraid that might mean I've sold out.
Agreed with SRS, quite a good video here from Friday night.
As someone also mentioned I also like My First Tooth.
Laura Sings Live is also good along with Benjamin Shaw.
folk album is bloody brilliant. Somehow he makes me want to go to scotland.
And Captain JAG - www.myspace.com/joewoodham
they're on Drift along with the likes of Birdengine, Mary Hampton etc.
Noah and the Whale
yes. these guys are sweet.
but I've always had a soft spot for the Indie Queen of Folk - Martha Tilston.
crap name, good band.
of posh folk, yet?
...probably fall into that catagory
sorry for plugging myself
I 2nd that!!!
something more classical...
also, any fans out there should join this group:
i love him. he's amazing.
proper superstars as this band contains members from both Tunng and The Memory Band
Pick Me Up - is the forthcoming single.
