American Folk Music has been a part of the popular culture for over 5 decades.

The last rush of popularity in a particular kind of singer-songwriter was in the 1990’s/Early 2000’s: Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Amos Lee, Ray Lamontagne, Ani Difranco, Gillian Welch. Since then, up and coming folk musicians and singer songwriters of this caliber are still appearing and creating great music.

Basic Folk is a podcast that intends to introduce you to the what’s next in the folk world and give you deeper insight on artists that you might know or are just getting to know. Hosted by me, Cindy Howes, a seasoned curator of music. My intention is to show you a brand of folk music that you might not know.

So freakin' good

As a folk musician myself, I love Cindy's approach to these interviews. She seems to have a way of making the musician's interviewed very comfortable. She asks very interesting questions and I love love love her casual tone. Plus, she picks the best people to interview. Thank you Cindy for giving folk lovers some really fun behind the scenes yumminess to chew on.

Cindy rules

I admit I've known Cindy for years, and I'm also featured on the podcast, so hell yes, I'm biased...but the truth is she is one of the smartest, most insightful interviewers out there. She really does her homework and asks truly interesting questions -- aaaand she's totally hilarious. One of the most enjoyable interviews I've ever done, and I'm loving listening to her interviews with so many of my songwriting heroes. Go, Cindy! 🙌🏼🙌🏼
