In recent years, I have rediscovered my love for folk music through the “My Music” series on PBS. I have also become a big fan of modern folk artists like Passenger, Mumford & Sons, and The Lumineers.

Music of the Moment:
We all have that one go-to song or artist that just never gets old no matter how many times we play it. For me, it’s Bon Iver. No matter what mood I’m in, I can always find a Bon Iver song to fit it.

Music I’m Feeling:
Folk Rewind is a genre of music that takes traditional folk songs and Recordings and revitalizes them with a modern touch. This can range from simply adding new instruments, to completely reimagining the song with different instrumentation and vocalizations. The goal is to create a new listening experience for the original song, while still holding true to the history and meaning of the folk tradition.

Music I’m Appreciating:
It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, so I decided to do a little music “folk rewind” and share some of the music I’ve been listening to and appreciating lately.
First up is the wonderful new album by Mary Gauthier, “Rifles & Rosary Beads.” Gauthier is a brilliant songwriter, and this album – inspired by her work with veterans through the SongwritingWith:Soldiers program – is simply stunning. Every song is a gut-punch, and each one feels like it could be its own mini-movie. This is easily one of my favorite albums of the year.
Next up is “Carry Fire,” the new album from Robert Plant. If you’re a fan of Led Zeppelin, you’ll find a lot to love here – there’s plenty of that classic Plant/Zeppelin sound on display. But even if you’re not familiar with Led Zeppelin, this is still a great album – Plant has lost none of his power or passion as a singer, and the songs are universally excellent. This is another one that’s been in near-constant rotation for me lately.
Finally, I want to recommend an album that’s maybe not getting as much attention as it deserves: “The Lonely One” by Haley Heynderickx. Heynderickx is a very gifted singer/songwriter, and this album is full of gorgeous melodies and insightful lyrics. I particularly love her voice – it’s warm and expressive, and really draws you into the songs. If you’re looking for something quieter and more introspective, this is definitely worth checking out.
Music I’m Learning:
As I continue learning and digging deeper into the genre of music I’ve been calling “Folk Rewind” (a mix of modern and traditional acoustic folk music), I wanted to share a playlist of some of the songs and artists I’ve been listening to and enjoying lately.
