PROG FOLK

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Prog Folk definition

In the wake of the 60's, 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 "Chansoniers" 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 THE 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, THE TREES, SPIROGYRA, FOREST, the superb JAN DUKES DE GREY (all listed in the ProgArchives) but also TRADER HORNE, TUDOR LODGE, FOTHERINGAY, MAGNA CARTA, TIR NA NOG (all of whom could also be in the ProgArchives) 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 77's Songs From The Woods and 78'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, WITTHEUSER & 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 EL CONGRESSO (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 Chansoniers 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 RIBEIRO ALPS, 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 Hangman's Beautiful Daughter
The Incredible String Band Prog Folk

Review by friso
Prog Reviewer

5 stars The Incredible String Band - The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter (1968)

This odd folk group has made some very enjoyable records, this one and 'The 5000 Spirits Or The Layers Of The Onion' being the most original in my opinion. The band has in its core Mike Heron and Robin Williamson, two songwriters and multi-instrumentalists with distinctive voices and styles. They both wrote their songs on their own, agreeing on the fact that the other could then later add instruments and lines without interference or too much discussion. The clumsy yet very authentic sound of the Incredible String Band is unique, yet it can also be quite challenging for some. A lot of the large arsenal of musical instruments sound like played by an amateur with much enthusiasm. Girlfriends Dolly Collins and Licorice McKechnie would also join the band and play percussions and keyboards.

The Incredible String Band deserves its place on the progarchives because of the original multi-part songwriting skills portrayed by both Heron and Williamson. At their best their power of imagination is unmatched and the free flow of inspired musical ideas is why I love to listen to a record like this. In addition, the music and lyrics can be really funny and a bit psychedelic. Perhaps a bit like Pink Floyd's debut album.

This album is a nonstop flow of original songs with surprising and fresh sounding ideas. I can highly recommend it, though it can take a while to get into what at first glance sounds amateurish ' but proves to be the reason why this album is among the few ageless and undying sixties records. I'm going to give this warm four and a halve star rating, enjoy!

Congreso Prog Folk

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars In 1976 flutist Hugo Pirovich, who participated in Congreso's debut, replaced for a brief time Renato Vivaldi, but by the time of the recordings of a third album Vivaldi was back onboard.Facing the strict lines of the dictatorship, Congreso kept producing music, which now contained allegoric lyrics, preventing any chance of conflicts with the political enviroment.The band introduced a huge list of guests on strings and wind instruments (no less than seven musicians) and the new album ''Congreso'', known also as ''The cafe album'', was released on EMI Odeon.

With this work Congreso attempted to mix Andean Folk with an elaborate Chamber Rock, retaining the light rock elements through the bass lines and drumming, and offering for the first time a set of long tracks, ranging from 6 to 10 minutes.Taking this work step by step, the first few pieces are following the same concept presented already by the band in previous releases, an elegant South-American Folk Rock with emphasis on expressive vocals and traditional instrumental tunes.With ''Los elementos'' you will face the band at its most experimental side, a slow, psychedelic intro with effects and drums will leave its place to mellow Andean Folk with the zampona in evidence and later to a dreamy instrumental work of Jazz, Folk and Chamber Music inspirations, which will close with an optimistic mood full of recorders and charango.Charango is also the main instrument on the following, short and rhythmic ballad ''El cielito de mi pieza''.''Tu canto'' clocks at about 6 minutes and features a nice intro with soft electric guitars, percussion and recorders, opening the way for a stretched Chamber Folk performance with melancholic orchestrations filled with strings and some bass, before closing in the same way as it has opened.The development of the band becomes really apparent in the 10-min. ''Arco iris de Hollin'', which is closer to R.I.O. and Chamber Music than Folk, dominated by odd string sections and depressive orchestral parts, dark flute lines and even a jazzy taste.A true surprise considering that Congreso sounded usually as an optimistic group, this is definitely some haunting, semi-acoustic and very dramatic all instrumental music.

For most of its part ''Congreso'' sounds like any other release by the band.Ethereal Prog Folk with an acoustic background, smooth interplays and romantic vocals.But the closing suite is an additional reason to buy the album for its unique atmosphere, somewhere between R.I.O. and Folk.Recommended.

Cauldron of Life
Thoby Loth Prog Folk

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars

Finnish folk/neo outfit THOBY LOTH' second album continues in largely the same vein as their debut, yet somehow the results are far more appealing. The band rocks harder, particularly in the preference for lead and rhythm guitar over organ, the melodies are more haunting, and the arrangements are far more atmospheric, as if a spaceship could descent into the clearing and spoil or boost the party, or perhaps just hover above and act as a spotlight on the rituals.

"Cauldron of Life" is as consistent as its predecessor but at a far higher level, one that insists upon itself and makes the diversion worthwhile. Again, highlights are difficult to pick out, as this runs like a soundtrack. On that subject, I should add that vocals are not missing in this highly evocative music, and, if you know me, you know I like my vocals! On this disk, THOBY LOTH reminds me at times of a high voltage CELTAS CORTOS but this is a supreme example of generating a fresh sound out of recycled parts, all the better for their vintage. I do suggest you stop by the cauldron in the wood, you know, the one you avoided before. You won't be disappointed.

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

3 stars

THOBY LOTH is a Finnish all instrumental group playing earth centered Nordic folk music with middle eastern and neo prog shadings. The flutes and keyboards of Tobias Tag predominate on this inaugural recording, with center stage occasionally belonging to Peter Enroth on lead guitar. While the music certainly recalls ancient shrouded rituals only feasible during fog choked nights with a full moon occasionally battling the obscurity, it also evokes occasionally marked and occasionally fleeting comparisons to the 1970s work of JETHRO TULL, KEBNEKAISE, FOCUS, and ASIA MINOR, as well as heavier acts.

It's all pretty entertaining and enjoyable, if passing by unnoticed a little too often. As consistent as it is, probably the best tracks are the last two, which are more atmospheric and even jazzy at moments. I think they most succinctly convey the band's leanings in a manner that suffuses one's core rather than intellect, that is to say, they are chillers! Supposedly based on ancient fairy tales, this collection is best not played at the bedsides of the young, but preferably at the hearth on the eve a pagan festival erstwhile or otherwise.

Thick As A Brick 2: Whatever Happened To Gerald Bostock?
Ian Anderson Prog Folk

Review by GrassySound

4 stars I was surprised when Ian Anderson decided to legitimately make a concept album, especially since the original Brick was a complete spoof on the notion that Aqualung was a conceptual piece. However, the music throughout this album is very strong, among IA's strongest "rock" music in a number of years. Like most IA/Tull music, there are a myriad of genres and styles, but this is what I find (and have always found) rewarding in IA's music.

Lyrically, IA questions what Gerald Bostick might be doing 40 years later. Five potential notions are suggested: greedy bank manager, homosexual homeless man, Afghan War soldier, evangelist preacher, and an ordinary man (single and childless) who runs a local store. Each proposition is intriguing, yet sometimes disturbing.

Though not a "Tull" album, this is still rife with strong musical and lyrical elements. Highly recommended!!

Faun Prog Folk

Review by Alucard Draco

5 stars Just got to listen to this Album now and wow - what can I say but thanks Amazon for the MP3 and the recent review of the Album I just caught and had to get and listen to straight away. I recently saw the Vikings series on the History channel and loved the opening song and thought it would be great to have an entire album like this and Licht is what I pretty much imagined - I also got Eden on Amazon MP3 the same day just to hear what a few years between albums can do.

But for now this album especially when sung in the native countries language makes this Norse and Mythical sounding album so much better for it. In fact with the traditional instruments and etheral singing as well as spoken words said in a poetical sounding way, just makes me so excited to listen to the other Albums made by Faun like Eden.

I love having images in my mind that are created by this folky Celtic old sound and I can almost imagine being at a Pagan Festival in the past in a woodland or surrounding countryside in a Geman tribal gathering. The instruments are just so well played and counjour up the Folklore and Myths that surrounded this style of music and the representation of a long but still remembered people of a time gone era.

Another hit for me.

5 stars Until I discovered FAUN I had never heard Prog Folk perfected. As I get to know their full discography I feel humbled and blessed, grateful and elated all at once for being privileged to know their music. With each album I hear I find myself thinking "This may be their best album" when, in fact, it is more likely that their entire body of work is the full and complete realization of Beauty sublimated into recorded music. Ynis avalach, Licht, Renaissance, Totem, Buch der Balladen, Eden, Von den Elben, Luna. I cannot extoll one above the others, though Licht is the one that finally put me over the top: helped me realize what a gold mine I had discovered. Still, I want to shout out my praises and exaltation for all of their albums! This is my music! Finally!!

Bededeum Prog Folk

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars An Italian Ethnic/Prog group from Carrara, the driving forces of which were guitarist Antonio Pincione and wind instrumentalists Davide Lazzaroni and Jacopo Bisagni.First line-up comprised also of female singer Enrica Mariani, guitarist Fabio Ghelli and violinist Martino Salvetti.Laura Mannucci replaced Mariani for a short time in 1999, but in 2000 their long-time lead singer Micaela Guerra along with bassist Gabriele D'Ascoli and drummer Rodolfo Giardina enter the picture.In 2002 the band releases a rare debut, ''Brevistele'', and the same year they abandon any thoughts on recruiting a drummer, after Giardina left the band (along with Salvetti).In 2006 comes a huge expansion, adding Chiara Vatteroni on harp, Sara Montefiori on violin, Andrea Cecchinelli on viola and Alessandro Maccione on violoncello.In 2008 Bededeum released their sophomore effort ''Oltre il sipario'' on the Locanda Del Vento label.

The use of flutes and strings does not leave much to imagination regarding the band's original musical direction, but it appears that with the addition of a huge string section in mid-00's Bededeum had sunk into the world of Ethnic Music for good.''Oltre il sipario'' has nothing to do with Rock music, it's actually a trippy Folk/Prog Folk album, based on the use of archaic traditional instruments and a mood for experimentation into the world of Mediterrenean and Celtic music with the flutes, piano, acoustic guitars and Uillean pipes leading the way.Not to mention the fantastic fairytale vocals of Micaela Guerra and the display of male/female dual vocal arrangements.Ethereal acoustic orchestrations with soft interplays between the instruments, poetic and minimalistic ethnic soundscapes and relaxing folky melodies are the main characteristics of the album with the Italian language and its unique-sounding harmony adding a beautiful dimension to the nostalgic musicianship.Along with the evident Italian and Celtic influences the album contains also hints of the Medieval period as well as British and French Folk with some troubadour-like male voices.The tracks with the heavy use of string instruments are also the most melancholic ones, a nice exhibition of lyrical emotions, acoustic charm and traditional tunes.

The band apparently dissapeared from the map and I have only detected the traces of a couple of members, which are still involved in Ethnic Music.Anyway, Bededeum left behind a warm, mellow and well-crafted document of Ethnic Music with all these multi-European influences and the album is definitely a nice addition for anyone searching for acoustic and imaginative soundscapes.

The Decemberists Prog Folk

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

3 stars The second release from the "brickbats and Bowery toughs" of Portland, Oregon tried a little too hard to maintain the charm of their earlier "Castaways and Cutouts" album, with mixed results. That defining quirkiness was still intact, and still amusing in a sometimes precious sort of way, but Colin Meloy's trademark adenoidal twang sounds a little forced in retrospect ("I felt a little stymied", he later said, "by the ticking of the studio clock...")

You can almost hear the effort that went into the recording. A lot of extraneous instrumentation was thrown into the mix, possibly to hide the cracks in some otherwise flimsy compositions: assorted horns, stray percussion, and so forth. A sign of ambition, or performance overkill? Some of it works, like the sea-salt stage effects in the opening "Shanty for the Arethusa". But some of it is merely distracting, for example the gumbo of strings in "Los Angeles, I'm Yours", and surrounding "The Gymnast, High Above the Ground".

The latter, at seven-plus minutes long, was clearly meant to be the album's centerpiece, but musically the song is too diffuse to be entirely effective. Ditto the climactic "I Was Meant For the Stage", a concert staple in years to come but not yet fully realized, despite its fascinating breakdown into chaotic dissonance. Elsewhere a potential Decemberist classic like "The Soldiering Life" suffers from what sounds like a rushed arrangement, possibly under the same studio stopwatch that vexed Meloy so much.

Lyrically the album can boast some of his sharpest writing to date, as usual with a cosmopolitan flair for antiquated imagery: chimbleys and knickers and whalebone corsets, in exotic Old World settings redolent of "incense, cardamom and myrrh". And yet, for better or worse, Meloy decided to dial back the anachronisms on this album, exercising his Indie Rock roots more than his Alt Prog aspirations. For proof I direct your wandering attention to the song "Los Angeles, I'm Yours", celebrating an unlikely port-of-call for such an unabashed Anglophile, especially when sung as "Los Angel-ees" (is that how its pronounced in Montana, Colin?)

Bottom line: the band's sophomore album isn't as solid as the '02 debut. But as a placeholder marking time until the return of their muse, it gets the job done. Two-and-a-half stars, rounded up by a forgiving admirer.

Stand Up
Jethro Tull Prog Folk

Review by siLLy puPPy
Prog Reviewer

4 stars After the wrestling match between the band's original guitarist Mick Abrahams and Ian Anderson over musical direction, the winner as we all know was Ian Anderson who would from this album on steer JETHRO TULL into his own personal vision of band development leaving behind the full on blues rock and going more in a folk rock direction. This second album STAND UP is the transitional album that still retains a bunch of blues but the dominant sound here is in the folk realm. The original LP version opened up like a children's pop-up book and the whole band would stand up when you opened the album. Unfortunately my CD has no such accoutrements but it is remastered from the original recordings and even has a few bonus tracks.

This was one of my first TULL albums so I have a strong affection for this one, but despite that it holds up quite well in the melody department. This album may not be the album that rocks the most, is the most progressive, is the cleverest or any particular quality that makes it STAND UP and out amongst the future releases but it does offer one outstandingly beautiful song after another. Each track is the perfect blues rock and folk rock blend and this is the album where Ian Anderson's flute really starts to fit in with the song structure in a flawless way. His vocals are perfect for this kind of music. I really love every track on here but I particularly love the Bach turned TULL instrumental "Bouree," the space folk rockers "Back To The Family" and "Nothing Is Easy" and the lugubrious tone of "Look Into The Sun" where Ian seems to be lamenting the end of the hippie era and realization that the world is a more complicated affair where darkness abounds and sadness ensues. A great album and the first true TULL album after the debut oddball.
