With links.

One very beautiful American folk song goes by the name "Shenandoah."

Another American folk song that at least I grew up with is "Billy Boy."

The Irish Tenors - Danny Boy (This one's beautiful)

John Denver - Country Roads (A recent song, but might as well be considered "folk")

Those would probably be war/anti-war songs, of which you can make a thread for those and I will contribute greatly.

There are a lot of genres that fall into the folk category so I'll try to hit you with some variety.

Harry 'Haywire' McClintock - written around 1900, recorded 1928
https://youtu.be/JqowmHgxVJQ

Merle Travis - 1940's
https://youtu.be/s00MV1sY37c

Mississippi John Hurt - 1928
https://youtu.be/24P8Q14yL94

Memphis Jug Band - 1928
https://youtu.be/Z9-nW7U7qhI

Now for something new. This guy plays traditional blues and folk style, some standards but mostly originals.

I remember Old Rock Candy Mountain! "Where they hung the jerk who invented work."


Now for some Cajun folk songs:

La Belle et le Capitaine - Lomax brothers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWgh_Hm8P_c

Belle - Lomax Brothers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXelazd5OkU

Terrible singers, but it kind of adds to the feel of living in Cajun land.
