PROG FOLK

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Prog Folk definition

In the wake of the 1960s, a Folk revival started on both sides of the Atlantic, and got quickly linked with a protest movement, not always, but often linked to more left-wing tendencies, which did not sit well with the authorities. BOB DYLAN, JOAN BAEZ, WOODY GUTHRIE, JOHN DENVER, BUFFY STE-MARIE, but also the FARINA couple Richard and Mimi for the US and SHIRLEY COLLINS and EWAN McCOLL (mentor of BERT JANSCH, JOHN RENBOURN ) for the UK and HUGUES AUFRAY in France. In Quebec, there was the "Chansonniers" phenomenon among which CLAUDE LEVEILLE and FELIX LECLERC were the most popular, waking up the sleepy "Belle Province" and stand up for itself from the English rule. The English part of Canada also brought up JONI MITCHELL, LEONARD COHEN (although he was from Montreal) and NEIL YOUNG.

As DYLAN turned electric with his Highway 61 Revisited album, much to the dislike of purists who yelled for treason, Folk Rock was born, opening the floodgates for younger artists to turn on the electricity. As DYLAN soon abandoned to style to create Country Rock with his next album, his British equivalent Scotsman DONOVAN stayed true to Folk Rock. In the US, THE BYRDS were the main promoters of the style by now, culminating with the superb "Eight Miles High" track with a lengthy (for the times) guitar solo of almost one minute. But countless other bands on the west coast, such as LOVE, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE (and later its spin-off HOT TUNA), GRATEFUL DEAD, QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE, PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, and TIM BUCKLEY all started in the folk rock realm. Even San Fran's SANTANA with its Latino traditional music and, on the east coast, NY's THE LOVING SPOONFUL had folk roots. Notwithstanding the immense popularity of SIMON & GARFUNKEL and their delicious harmonies, Folk Rock was appealing only to the rock public as the older generations turned their backs in folkies.

In the UK, following on their countrymen DONOVAN, many Scotsmen were very influent in exploring new grounds for folk rock: INCREDIBLE STRING BAND (led by Scots Palmer and Williamson) with their two highly influential albums "5000 Layers Or The Spirit Of The Onion" & "The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter" and THE PENTANGLE (led by other Scots Renbourn, Jansch and McShee and their superb bassist Danny Thompson) and its incredible fusion of folk, blues and jazz style were very instrumental in developing the style to the same extent as FAIRPORT CONVENTION and STRAWBS who by that time were still more conventional US "west-coast folk rock". The single artistes in folk rock became known as Folk Troubadours were also numerous and often presented a more progressive side of folk: AL STEWART, NICK DRAKE, ROY HARPER, TYRANOSAURUS REX (actually a duo of Steven Took and Marc Bolan) , JOHN MARTYN etc.

However, the real angular album that will lead to further change of Folk Rock is FAIRPORT CONVENTION's "Liege & Lief" album, that proved to be highly influential for another generation of groups: this album concentrated into electrifying seminal English traditional folk and retained that quaint Englishness taste. It is interesting to see that both leaders of FAIRPORT quit the band after this success to go their respective way: Sandy Denny to a solo folk songwriting career and Ashley Hutchings to a very traditional folk rock. By this time, most connoisseur were talking of Acid Folk, Psych Folk, and Progressive Folk, all having limited differences and no particularly drawn-out limits or boundaries, but all relying on experimental or groundbreaking adventures and good musicianship but not necessarily of an acoustic nature.

Groups like THE THIRD EAR BAND and QUINTESSENCE relied on eastern Indian music influences and, sometimes, medieval tones. Other groups like the weird COMUS, TREES, SPIROGYRA, FOREST, the superb JAN DUKES DE GREY but also TRADER HORNE, TUDOR LODGE, FOTHERINGAY, MAGNA CARTA, and TIR NA NOG were out to break new ground but with less commercial success as their predecessor. By 1972, all of the glorious precursors bands were selling fewer records and had problems renewing themselves and a newer generation of groups was relying in a more Celtic jigs or really traditional sounds. Such as HORSLIPS, DANDO SHAFT, STEELEYE SPAN, AMAZING BLONDEL, ALBION DANCE BAND and SPRIGUNS OF TOLGUS. Although JETHRO TULL had some definitive folk roots right from the start, their only albums that can be regarded as Prog Folk are 1977's Songs From The Woods and 1978's Heavy Horses. Ian Anderson (another Scots) was very keen in acoustical traditional songs. Some Folk Troubadours such as TIM BUCKLEY and JOHN MARTYN started turning records more and more axed towards fusing jazz and folk (a bit in what THE PENTANGLE were doing) , others became more and more electric and they started to be referred to as Singer Songwriters especially those with country rock influences.

In Germany, HOELDERLIN (and their fantastic debut album), EMTIDI, OUGENWEIDE, CAROL OF HARVEST, WITTHUSER & WESTRUPP were exploring German folk while KALACAKRA , SILOAH and EMBRYO were indulging with Indian music. In South America, most notably in Chile, LOS JAIVAS (very bent upon Andean Indian music) and CONGRESO (more Spanish-Latino folklore) were using folk in their rock, so much that some press talked about them referring it with the hateful term Inca Rock. In Quebec, the progressive movement exploded with the cultural identity and the Chansonniers tradition and this was carried out with LES SEGUIN and HARMONIUM and so many more. In France, many groups were out for folk rock such as CATHERINE RIBEIRO AND ALPES, TANGERINE, and ASGARD. In Spain, Flamenco playing a dominant role as well as Basque folk, TRIANA, ITOIZ and HAIZEA were the head of the movement once the Franco regime fell apart after his death.


There is also a very important medieval music influences dimension in some groups as the term Medieval Folk was also mentioned for a while but apparently dropped by musicologists. Among the UK groups are obviously GRYPHON, GENTLE GIANT and THIRD EAR BAND, in France: MALICORNE and RIPAILLE and in Scandinavia: ALGARNAS TRADGARD and FOLQUE.

The Serpent's Egg
Dead Can Dance Prog Folk

Review by Gallifrey

4 stars Listening diary 23rd January 2021: Dead Can Dance - The Serpent's Egg (neoclassical darkwave, 1988)

This has become my favourite Dead Can Dance album, although that's probably only because it's the one I've spent the most time with. They're a band that create such outstanding moods but can be difficult to get into beyond a surface level background music kind of enjoyment. This one, probably aided by its utterly magnificent opener and the frequent allusions to Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares has grown on me from those initial impressions. It does fall off a bit after its introduction and its length means that the less remarkable second half goes by before you've even noticed it, but it has a great balance of mood and songwriting overall.

7.1 (6th listen)

A (La Mode) - The 40th Anniversary Edition
Jethro Tull Prog Folk

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars In the comprehensive and captivating liner notes we can read that initially the A album was meant as a solo project by Ian Anderson (that explains the A), but in the end the record company decided that releasing A as a new Jethro Tull album was commercially more interesting. And that "A was an attempt to bring Jethro Tull from the farmland into the Eighties".

Well, to me the studio-album A sounds fresh and inspired, with strong contributions by special guest Eddie Jobson. But it is not really a historical musical document, some great tracks, and some mediocre songs. However the A tour was glorious, a stunning blend of Jethro Tull classics, and the visual extra bonus of Eddie Jobson performing the A tracks, with mindblowing soli on his violins, and spectacular use of the mighty Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer, in those days high- tec. I was blown away by Jethro Tull on stage during the A tour, but pretty disappointed about the Slipstream video footage, I consider the band clips as disturbing. So I hoped that this lavish boxset featured unreleased live video footage, as you can see on YouTube, unfortunately this is not the case.

Nonethless this boxset is very interesting, especially due to the excellent two different remixes (by Steve Wilson, CD-1 and DVD-1) and bonustracks of the A album, the entire LA 1980 concert (2 different mixes, on CD 2 and 3, and DVD 2, audio only), and last but not least the remixed Slipstream video (DVD-3).

For me this 3-CD/3-DVD boxset is a very pleasant trip down Memory Lane, back to a concert that featured two great and unique musicians: Eddie Jobson and Ian Anderson (they met each other when UK supported Jethro Tull in 1979), enjoy their sparkling chemistry, embellished with lots of sensational soli on guitar, flute and keyboards.

Christ Church Cathedral
Clannad Prog Folk

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Clannad had been mostly inactive since their then-last studio album Landmarks (1998), when they were asked to perform at Dublin's historic Christ Church Cathedral in 2011. The public response was so enthusiastic that the event turned into three consecutive nights. More live activity followed, and eventually the band -- with Pól Brennan back to the line-up -- also made a new studio album, Nádúr (2013), which however remains their last one today.

The nearly full CD-length set containing 19 tracks has a strong emphasis on the early traditional folk era. I'm not very familiar with it in general, since I found Clannad during their modernly produced pop years and have never really dug deeper into their earliest albums apart from what I've heard on their compilations. That's why I'm not going to deal with things like from which albums they chose the material for this concert. By listening to the CD I can only say the set is pleasant and feels just right for the venue. Most songs are marked as "trad., arr. Clannad". A pity the leaflet doesn't tell what instruments the band members themselves play (harp, acoustic guitar, mandolin, flute, tin whistle, percussion, bass, I suppose). Guest musicians play violin, viola, cello, percussion and keyboards. But it's the marvelous use of harmony vocals what I think is the essence of the band's unique sound, especially when talking of the traditional tunes in Gaelic.

In the midway of the set there are several well known pieces from their more popular era featuring more synth on the background, starting with the mysteriously atmospheric 'Newgrange'. After two delicious trad. tunes they play a six- minute, four-part medley 'Robin of Sherwood' from the early 80's TV series closely associated with Clannad's original music for it. This is a nice gesture instead of performing just the famous theme song 'Robin (The Hooded Man)'. Occasionally the medley reminds me of the folk prog à la Jethro Tull. 'Caislean Óir' is the delicate opening track of Macalla (1985), followed by 'In a Lifetime' from the same album. It was originally a duet with Bono (of U2), and here his place is taken by Brian Kennedy. Agreeing with the previous reviewer, I don't think he fully succeeds in replacing Bono's superb vocals. 'I Will Find You' was a love song on the film The Last of the Mohicans -- also included on Clannad's studio album Banba (1994) -- , and 'Theme from Harry's Game' is undoubtedly THE best remembered, career-turning, popularity-launching song which truly deserves a place here.

This live album with an excellent sound quality and acoustics can be recommended to both longtime fans of the band and newcomers interested in Celtic music, of which genre Clannad is a major legend.

Thick as a Brick
Jethro Tull Prog Folk

Review by Ian McGregor

5 stars As bold as it may sound, but out of the top five albums in this site, there's only two that I consider beginning-to-end masterpieces with no filler or weak tracks. The first one is, obviously, Close To The Edge, but the second one is without a doubt Jethro Tull's fifth album, Thick As A Brick.

An album that consists entirely of a single title track divided in half, with multiple movements. I don't think any other record I've ever heard is as compact as this one. It's a non-stop rollercoaster of tons and tons of different sections getting thrown at your face before you can even process them. It's a very technical album, yet it somehow doesn't feel pretentious or self-indulgent.

Funnily enough, this record is a joke. Music critics, as always, are never satisfied. When Jethro Tull released Aqualung, the critics said it was good but directionless. In other words, they wanted a concept album. Something easy to follow. Jethro Tull, in response, made a concept album that's basically an epic poem by a ten year old. The intentional messiness of the story complements perfectly with the manic and fast paced instrumentation that remains for the whole record.

Strangely, this is one of the most accessible Jethro Tull albums, don't get tricked by the fact that it's composed of two twenty minute tracks. The melodies are catchy, memorable, and easy to sing along to. There really isn't any Moonchild-ish sections that could come up as too experimental and scare away potential new prog fans. The album has an excellent flow and it's not boring a single moment. It combines up-beat instrumentation with mellow parts that are more present in the second half of the album.

This is one of those records that is perfect from beginning to end. There's nothing that you can change about it. Every second is there for a solid reason and the ending product is very satisfying to listen. An essential album of progressive rock, and one of the cornerstones of rock in general.

Jethro Tull Prog Folk

Review by Antonio Giacomin

5 stars Thick As A Brick

There should be allowed to every fond prog reviewer in this site the chosen of SEVEN masterpieces to receive a sixth star. And I say SEVEN just because there are seven days in a week and seven wonders in the world, as well?

Of course, "Thick As A Brick" would be one of those seven masterpiece to receive a sixth star. For those that might be curious I say the other ones are "Close To The Edge", "Selling England By The Pound", "Foxtrot", "Pawn Hearts", "Godbluff" and "In A Glass House". Of course, my apologies to "In The Court Of Crimson King", you would be the eighth; but unfortunately we are allowed to choose only seven (I cannot stop joking ever?)?

Ok, I like to make fun many of the times, but I can I say about "Thick As A Brick" that wasn´t said yet ? Frankly, not too much. Master of concept album ? Of course it is. The story told in this concept is so strong and above average and matches criterion of genius ? Of course ! The only new thing I can present is my position of an old prog lover; "Thick As A Brick" is for me the ONLY album that really gets near "Close To The Edge" as the best prog album that has ever been recorded? SIX STARS?

Thick As A Brick 2 [Aka: TAAB2]
Ian Anderson Prog Folk

Review by Antonio Giacomin

5 stars Thick As A Brick 2

After everything I said praising "Thick As A Brick", what is here to be said about this second part that appeared after forty years ?

First of all, it pales in a musical comparison, it doesn´t get close in this criteria. Is it a reason for despair ? Absolutely, NOT. "Thick As A Brick" is a six star masterpiece, even a "common" masterpiece would pale at its side. The music in TAAB2 represents a kind of challenge in order to be appreciated; in the same way I consider the album "Minstrel In The Gallery". It takes a very long time for you to get use with and for it to really grow on you. Not obvious melodies; everything is subtle, but variety throughout the songs are assured, and Mr, Anderson´s skills hardly fails us.

But I am giving it five star; and what are the reasons for it ? Ok, I could say "Thick As A Brick" is a six stars album, so its not so extraordinary follow up TAAB2 could deserve five; but this is good for a joke, not for justifying a masterpiece status. What must be said in this moment is that the concept in TAAB2 matches and is as good as its older brother. When Mr. Anderson took the decision of composing a story regarding what could have happened to Gerald Bostock after forty years after the events reported by the "St. Cleves Cronicles"; and performed it in the way he performed, the music started to matter less.

This is a way for things to go. TAAB2 has also a masterpiece status. Hardly someone would conceive a better follow up for "Thick As A Brick" concept. And, if you do not consider its musical content up to this status, just subtract some from its older brother. Even with this lost TAAB1 will continue to be a masterpiece?

Review by ElChanclas

5 stars "...really don't mind if you sit this one out, my word's but a whisper your deafness a shout..." and I was hooked for life 25 years or so ago, my first prog music listen ever, my first progressive music purchase ever and still up to this date my go-to Tull album. The genius of this masterpiece won't ever fit in any review because there is too much greatness in it, Anderson's musical and lyrical creativity where at an irrepetible place and left an eternal mark in rock's history, mainly within the symphonic and progressive music community. Medieval flutes and acoustic guitars open this concept album in a memorable way bringing love at first sight for any listener, no doubt about that, and then the band steps in...

Hammond and Barlow's tandem works like a Swiss clock flawlessly executing a very complex variety of tempos and beats following the lead of a madman to the dot while, in the meantime, Evan and Barre playfully fill the atmosphere with unearthly riffs and melodies while Palmers's orchestral performance brings balance to the whole crazy and genius act! The madman is no more and the now mad scientist smiles lifting his flute to the sky conquering the music world forever "...and the poet sheaths his pen while the soldier lifts his sword..." If you know this album then go and revisit it, if you don't then...treat yourself to an unforgettable musical experience.

Mostly Autumn Prog Folk

Review by badgeradk

5 stars I read somewhere previously that Mostly Autumn was the best band that nobody ever heard of. Here in the States, I would most certainly agree to that statement. In recent years I myself have purchased most of their catalog from 2010 starting with "Dressed in Voices" in 2014 while also obtaining the compilation set "Passing the Clock". This band is the total definition of Processive rock! In my 60 years of listening to great music, this is one of the few bands that have totally "blown me away" taking me on a different level. They have now been added to my list that includes Genesis, Kansas, Rush and Yes as "THE ULTIMATE" in music! Between Bryan Josh's genius (and others) and Oliva Sparneen's vocals, this particular album is unsurpassed. With use of a wide variety of sounds, including a "Ghost Rider In the Sky" guitar and Scottish Bag Pipes on the same track, this album is definitely their Magnum Opus. I could go on and on about this album but I'll just sum it up by saying unbelievable! It's a "must" for all prog rock connoisseurs. I so wish this band would come to the Northeast States as part of their next tour. This is the only band left on my "bucket list" to see live.

The Machine That Cried
String Driven Thing Prog Folk

Review by mickcoxinha

3 stars The most recognized String Driven Thing album among the prog fans is not that much of a prog album, but it is understandable why it is considered their best effort, since there is a 11-minute song that, although it is not that varied or adventurous, it has three parts and, as always, Graheme Smith's experimental violin and viola sounds make it more interesting. either in the sung parts and in the instrumental interlude, which is the best thing in String Driven Thing career along with the experimental Timpani for the Devil in the following album. Another song that is also one of the proggy highlights is The Machine That Cried, which has great solos in the end.

One thing that is particularly interesting from this album is that many of the songs have a darker and somber mood, and it makes it sound better than the other albums where the non-proggy songs (the majority) were not much different from what 70s blues rock, folk rock and hard rock bands were doing. For example, Heartfeeder is a song that doesn't change much except for the solo, but the darker tone makes the violin shine. Sold Down the River is another rock with bluesy riffs, but enhanced by the electric violin solos.

There are obviously more rock and folk songs than prog ones. To See You, Travelling and The House are folk songs, the first being the most interesting to me, sounding like many folk rock songs from late 60s. People in the Street is a lenghty ballad, while Night Club and Two Timin' Rama makes things more interesting because of the change in the mood, since they are pure blues rock.

The album, being a bit uneven, fails a bit to become a masterpiece, but even so it ends being the most interesting String Driven Thing album not much because it is a prog gem, but because it has a bunch of interesting songs. I wouldn't say it is radically different to their other albums, but in a prog point of view, maybe it is the one that will leave the listener more satisfied, although most of the songs are either blues rock or folk.

Please Mind Your Head
String Driven Thing Prog Folk

Review by mickcoxinha

3 stars I'd like to start this review by saying that prog fans trying to find "that prog classic" from String Driven Thing will be up for a disappointment, because they are very far from that, except for a couple of more "adventurous" songs in each album. That doesn't mean that the band is not enjoyable. It is just that the "prog" elements were much more the exception than the norm in their music.

I can see why some people don't like "Please Mind Your Head", and it is not because they have dropped the prog somewhere, it is because they dropped the folk/blues rock in favor of hard and soul/funk. While "The Machine That Cried" could technically be considered their most "prog" because the "proggy" songs are longer than the "proggy" songs in other albums, it is mostly just a bunch of folk rock and blues rock songs with the distinctive violin and viola by Graheme Smith making the difference.

The highlight of the album is obviously Timpany for the Devil, a song where Graheme Smith has free reign to take his experimental violin and viola playing to the heights. It is probably the most experimental song from String Driven Thing. Besides that, there are some pretty good songs, like Without You, which is harder and has some great violin use and a nice guitar solo (it reminds of early Kansas, even), the funky Josephine, with its great rhythm section and a good instrumental interludes, and the closing song To Know You Is To Love You, which is kinda funky as well, and not surprisingly since it is a Stevie Wonder cover. The other songs are nice too, but they are more commercial, especially Mrs. O'Reily, which is probably the weakest song of the album.

It seems like these albums here not released recently, so it was not worthy hunting down a copy, although the album is good. However, with music stream services, it is available, so it is fine. The version "Graheme Smith's personal tapes" is fine, though it is a bit rough and maybe it deserved a remaster.
