    Thousands of good folk albums. 1 variation not yet mentioned I think is pure vocal...close harmony stuff. It's a bit 'finger in ear' jokey but the early recordings are lovely, and the story telling remains clear and unbothered by instrumentation.

    Try:
    The Young Tradition ‎– The Young Tradition Sampler
    Label:
    Transatlantic Records ‎– TRA SAM 13

    . Not a track for the anti huntsters, but this was england 100 years ago or more.:)

    Planxty's first album, Smoke and Strong Whisky by Christy Moore, maid in Bedlam by John Renbourn (although all his records are great), writer of songs by Harvey Andrews, and Flatfish by Flook are all great folk albums I've got and listened to recently.

    Contemporary folk, roots and Americana music. Both produced beautiful albums, and are even better live.
