Country and Folk Music - Modest Beginnings, Modern Sound
Country and folk are ever-evolving genres that have come a long way from their modest roots. Nashville may be the heart and home of country music, but fresh faced artists such as Taylor Swift have demonstrated massive crossover appeal with worldwide audiences.
Folk music is a category all its own, with contemporary acts proving that the sound hasn't lost its appeal through the years. Artists such as Bob Dylan keep classic folk alive while critically-acclaimed bands like Bon Iver interpret it for a new generation. Resonant and sincere, country and folk music may stir emotions one moment and inspire toe-tapping the next. Such diversity is what keeps listeners interested, engaged and wanting more from the genres' popular artists.

Country and Folk Music Live - Tradition Meets the Contemporary
The massive popularity of acts like Fleet Foxes proves that folk music is still a huge draw for audiences. Steeped in an array of traditions, different regions and cultures have put their own home grown spins on its sound. Anyone that's seen Mumford and Sons bring their rollicking banjo licks and drum beats to the stage can attest to folk rock's modern appeal. Yet, folk musicians haven't forgotten about the genre's storied past. Legends such as Woodie Guthrie and Joan Baez have influenced the work of today's stars, who owe something to these artists' trailblazing ways.
Country concerts, meanwhile, are an interactive medley of sing-alongs and dancing, catering to a mishmash of entertainment tastes. UK audiences have embraced the work of Johnny Cash and hardworking country stars like Keith Urban, whose showmanship and relatable music resonates with fans. Attending country and folk gigs is the best way to see what these enduring genres have to offer, and how they're continuing to change.
