Also I second the Alamaailman Vasarat comment. That band is madness.

May I suggest: 

https://soundcloud.com/woebegonespacefolk


This is my band.. And I am curious to hear if you think this is prog-related?
We like labeling our music as "space folk".. But its not really covering everything we do..

The band is brand new. And called Woebegone.

I think the only band I've heard of that fits the description of folk metal is Korpiklani(sp) but I never really heard them just heard OF them. I never thought of Alamaailman Vasarat as folk metal. That's news to me.

Lumsk used to play folk metal.

And even a little prog at times.. especially on their last album. 
Here is a mellow tune..

Moonsorrow is (on at least one album) very progressive and (on all albums) very folky black metal.  You can check out Moonsorrow's page on ProgArchives and read about their albums. I highly enjoy the overall aesthetics, not too abrasive and extreme, and not too "cold".  Despite the band name, it's music suitable for listening at any time, day/night/summer/winter you name it.

One Moonsorrow album is particulary progressive, just look at the epic track lengths:

http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=17430

Studio Album, released in 2005

Songs / Tracks Listing

1. Karhunkynsi (14:00)
2. Haaska (14:42)
3. Pimeä (14:08)
4. Jotunheim (19:28)
5. Kaiku (8:10)

Clap


Total playing time 70:39

(on my computer it was more like 72 minutes, but much of the length is quiet and almost "silent" ambient folk passages, so it's not really that long.)

All the Moonsorrow albums deserve a listening, and particularly Voimasta Ja Kuniasta (not sure about the orthographe)

Check out Windir too, a great band, although not really prog...

Lugubrum are also worth a mention, they're not on PA but they're possibly the world's only Captain Beefheart-influenced black metal group. The band's lyrics and general concept is strongly rooted in Flemish regional folklore and cultural identity.
