Modern Folk Music

Modern Folk describes music influenced both by Traditional Folk and Punk. Artists like Billy Bragg and Ani DiFranco blend the rawness of Punk, with folk-oriented songwriting. On the other side of the Modern Folk spectrum, bands like 10,000 Maniacs and Poi Dog Pondering incorporate folk sounds and attitudes into lighter, adult-oriented rock.
