1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Americana wise, I've a thing for Father John Misty at the mo. I love Pure Comedy. I'd also check out Jim White, and of course Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss, Mary Chapin Carpenter. Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez are worth checking too. And I love the Avett Brothers, this kills me:

    Saw a chap named M G Boulter in a local pub a few months back; I liked his UK folk mingled with Americana sound very much...

  10. Big Tabs

    Big Tabs hearing problems

    Ferocious Dog

    worth a listen if you like folk rock/punk.

    excellent banjo player John Leonard plays a lively tune and plays pipes as well.
  11. I got into folk via the Imagined Village albums.

    Cheers BB

    Seconded. Kathryn originates from the village we live in and we know her parents (name dropper eh? ). Very musical family. Check out Equation, who did well in the States. Kathryn and Sean were key members. Early in her career she formed a duo with Kate Rusby who, if you've not heard her, is definitely worth checking out.

    I would also recommend Damien O'Kane (husband of Kate Rusby).
