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.

Ikaro
Aalto Prog Folk

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

3 stars It's been 10 years now since AALTO has been silent, with "Ikaro" remaining their latest. While similarities to fellow Finns TENHI can be advanced, this is a bit more upbeat, and is also informed by eastern European and MIddle Eastern influences and broad instrumentation. I'm particularly engrossed by the Balkan sounding numbers like "Vapahtaja", since many from that region moved to Finland to escape the war torn Yugoslavia, and AALTO can call to mind SEDMINA and DARNAKES among others. A raga like tendency flourishes on numbers like "Kastepisaroita II", though it withers on the opening track. "Hetsätaloushöömei" is perhaps the most TENHI-like and also my pick, though it came close to being silenced on my first listen. Its didgeridoo, banjo, and raspy male vocals intermingled with more harmonic male and female voices are spellbinding.

This might not quite soar like its namesake Icarus, but AALTO deserved to make more waves than fortune bestowed upon it. Perhaps a Round 2 is in the offing?

Old Waves New Seas
Aquaplan Prog Folk

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

4 stars This now defunct Finnish folk jazz group released 3 albums in the 2000s, "Aquaplan" being the last. It's a shame because the level of maturity here is evident in the manner in which the band prioritizes a laid back yet upbeat clean "sound", unlike most Finnish prog. They do rock out but it's never overwrought or for too long. The two most defining aspects of their style are conveyed by vocalist Maarit Saarenkunnas and bassist Ville Veijalainen, though all members contribute to advantage.

Maarit's voice reminds me of a blend of Cat Ellen (FOREVER TWELVE), Stephanie Adlington and Jane Relf (RENAISSANCE), Joanna Hogg (IONA), and Moya Brennan (CLANNAD). Ville's bass takes over several tracks and, along with the piano and electric guitar to lesser degrees, impart a crisp jazzy sheen. While this is all enjoyable, the apex is represented by the sequence from "Lucky Me: through "Ordinary Life".

While "Old Waves New Seas" might sound vaguely familiar, it's a fresh take on Finnish prog folk could launch or cap off an evening of musical surfing. Not quite 4 stars.

Airut Aamujen
Tenhi Prog Folk

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Using a stripped-down version of the usual Tenhi lineup and instrumentation, and focused around the piano, Airut:aamujen originally emerged under the project name of Harmaa, before Tenhi decided it deserved to be part of their main discography. As you might guess from the title, it takes its approach largely from the Airut:Ciwi EP - specifically Kielo, the ten-minute track which was the fulcrum of that release, and is essentially a further development of its ideas. Existing in the borderland between dark folk and art rock, it offers a richly compelling sound which in its more epic moments starts drifting towards post-rock territory.

Kivenpyorittaja
Juha Kujanpaa Prog Folk

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

4 stars Unusually for a "solo" album, this 2013 debut by a veteran of the Helsinki arts scene is very much an ensemble instrumental project. Juha's keys are often dominated by the 3 violins and electric guitar, and even occasionally by winds, suggesting that his powers as arranger/composer really represent the fulcrum of "Kivenpyorittaja", which translates to "Tales and Travels". And these powers are indeed impressive, at least through most of the first 2/3 of the audition.

My closest comparison would be a modernized take on the master Swedes of instrumental folk rock in the 1970s, KEBNEKAJSE, with more intermingled jazz. It's all very listenable and mildly challenging, the best being the opening title cut, evoking photogenic pastoral low angled solar landscapes, and vibrant ones at that. I also enjoy the allusions to cultures just over the sea to the south, specifically Poland, on two tracks, and the more geographically proximal "Suomenmaa", translating as Finnish samba", where the intriguing jazzy aspects attain their peaks. It's only in the last 4 numbers that Juha seems to accept the ordinary; these pieces are baseline intriguing but they substitute ambience for verve and don't play to the strengths of this "big band".

At its best, this is superb genre-busting ethnic music, and, at its worst, it's still accomplished if unexciting. I'm going to lift it by its tales, up to 4 star status.

Flairck Prog Folk

Review by TenYearsAfter

5 stars In 1978 Flairck was for the first time on the Dutch television and the band impressed with their captivating acoustic blend of different styles, and their virtuosic play. Soon after Flairck did a serie of gigs in my hometown The Hague (supporting their debut LP entitled Variaties Op Een Dame, from 1978), I was invited to join a group of friends who played in a folk band and were very eager to watch Flairck.

I still remember the huge excitement of our group, and in fact, the entire crowd, lots of cheers, 'wows', long handclapping and in the end a standing ovation! After their splendid second LP Gevecht Met De Engel (1980) Flairck went on an extensive international tour, resulting in the double live LP Live In Amsterdam.

Flairck delivers outstanding and very inspired versions of their two studio-albums tracks, featuring many improvisations and soli.

From warm 12-string guitars and soaring flute to propulsive acoustic rhythm guitar and powerful acoustic bass, blended with swirling panflute and violin.

From folk (often Celtic and Eastern Europe hints) and jazz to classical or a blend of several styles with flowing shifting moods and exciting soli on a wide range of instruments.

The band puts a lot of emotion and also humor into their music so it never sounds clinical, in contrary!

After this double live album Flairck released their third album Circus in 1981, also interesting but then the sound of the band shifted to more experimental and even avant-garde elements, not really my cup of tea.

Flairck - Live In Amsterdam : a true masterpiece of progressive folk, highly recommended!

Pichanga - Profecias A Falta De Ecuaciones
Congreso Prog Folk

Review by mhernand3

3 stars "Pichanga - Profecias A Falta De Ecuaciones," released by Congreso in 1992, is a compelling testament to the band's enduring legacy in the Chilean music scene. This album showcases Congreso's distinctive blend of folk, rock, and Latin American rhythms. It features the notable participation of Nicanor Parra, a well-known poet, adding depth and richness to the musical experience.

One of the album's notable strengths lies in its diverse instrumentation, which includes traditional folk instruments like the charango and quena alongside electric guitars and synthesizers. This fusion of sounds creates a dynamic sonic landscape that effortlessly traverses genres and influences, offering listeners a journey through Chilean cultural heritage and contemporary musical experimentation.

Lyrically, "Pichanga - Profecias A Falta De Ecuaciones" delves into themes ranging from social commentary to personal introspection, with poetic and evocative storytelling woven throughout the album. Congreso's thoughtful lyrics, sung in Spanish and complemented by Nicanor Parra's contributions, resonate with authenticity and depth, inviting listeners to reflect on issues of identity, politics, and the human experience.

Standout tracks such as Ún Día un Árbol me Preguntó' exemplify Congreso's prowess as both musicians and lyricists, blending infectious melodies with thought-provoking lyrics to create songs that are both catchy and meaningful. Whether exploring the complexities of love or confronting societal injustices, each track on the album offers a unique perspective and emotional resonance.

Overall, "Pichanga - Profecias A Falta De Ecuaciones" is a testament to Congreso's enduring creativity and musical innovation. With its diverse sonic palette, poignant lyrics, and the added dimension of Nicanor Parra's participation, the album will captivate longtime fans and newcomers alike, cementing Congreso's status as one of Chile's most iconic musical acts.

Strawbs Prog Folk

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars Recently I stumbled upon an album that I didn't play for a long time when I was in the mood for Mellotron friendly prog, it's entitled The Strawbs - BBC In Concert. This legendary band (featuring Chas Cronk who later joined Steve Hackett solo) gained a lot of attention with their humorous hit-single Part Of The Union, it peaked at #2 in the UK charts, in 1973. But The Strawbs are hard to pigeonhole, their sound is unique. Singer Dave Cousins plays an important role, colouring the music in a very special way with his distinctive voice, from tender to powerful, with a lot of expression.

This BBC radio broadcast contains recordings from '73 and '74. The music frequently shifts between folky (acoustic guitars), classical (piano and harpsichord) and sumptuous symphonic rock outbursts (fiery electric guitar and majestic Mellotron evoking BJH and The Moody Blues). The 15 tracks on this CD include their best work, my favorites are Tears And Pavan, Down By The Sea (what a compelling Mellotron sound), Part Of The Union and Hero And Heroine.

If you are up to discover The Strawbs this is an excellent musical encounter.

Viima Prog Folk

Review by alainPP

4 stars VIIMA the wind, that's it! Yes, I'm diving into it because it's labeled regressive rock, so my aversion for this common genre without creation just needs to be refined and who better than VIIMA which is emerging from its lethargy after 15 years. TENHI you see, VIIMA is in theory less dark.

1. Tyttö Trapetsilla begins with a typical melodic folk prog with the local voice, which leans towards the first Tenhi, a tune which becomes symphonic over time, all on a trapeze story; the guitar solo smacks of the 70's with a heavy hint that will give you something to worry about. 2. Äiti Maan Lapset for a long suite, almost 20 minutes, which takes you to the southern Scandinavian lands; what more can I say? Regressive Canterbury, yes but evolving Canterbury with heavy breaks which reinforce the apocalypse texts cited; Proud fundamentalists will love feeling lulled into this musical landscape of yesteryear with distinctive sounds; otherwise you will need an attentive ear to eat this piece. 3. Pitkät Jäähyväiset starts again with the evocation of a desperate and hopeless world; the flute bringing a glimmer of light; the Mellotron even more; the hard guitar denotes and animates the tune, changing from a desperately melancholy JORDJO from start to finish; well JORDJO won't blame me I'm talking about them; the vocal is an integral part of the tune, a plus ultimately; the air softens with the bewitching flute, which has been fashionable for some time in progressive groups. 4. Perhonen for the poetry piece, an electric piano that flows like water in a stream; the rise with the orchestration of vintage prog stands out from TENHI who chose to evolve towards dark-heavy prog post, with sparkling colors of deep black. VIIMA offers a gentle folkloric and progressively heavy alternation with an angry guitar; a vintage prog of today where you don't actually get bored; the wind comes and 5. Vuoren Rauha, peace of the mountain dixit; Risto's voice melts the listener on a solemn organ, a melancholy ballad with the warmer organ, accompanied by clear drums bringing a typical slow, one of those that makes you want to hold your girlfriend in your arms for a long time; the wind returns, it's time to go home.

Classic medieval prog folk rock with 70s progressive rock, ending up sounding modern with heavy instrumental breaks and very beautiful vocals from their native language for a today's sound; yes vintage like that I ask for more every day.

Paul Brett Prog Folk

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

— First review of this album —
3 stars I'm not quite sure how I missed this one back in 2017, as it appears to have been PAUL BRETT's penultimate release of new material, fittingly under the auspices of SAGE, his electrified "band", a format that seemed to become more meaningful to him in his last years. This one has a very different mood than most of what kept him busy after 2000. While still informed by unsubtle political and sociological commentary, "Eclectic" is much lighter afoot, best exemplified by the Monty Python-esque "General Erection", with its searing leads and careening off the walls of several pop and folk standards. "Captain Midnight" sees Brett channeling mid period LINDISFARNE, similarly brandishing brass. "Christmas Day" is somewhat superior to the average seasonal pop track, while "One Night Stand" almost dances itself off the virtual grooves before it takes a welcome proggy turn. Both "Boys in the Band" and the "Metal Hearts, Mental Minds" are similarly more adventurous than most of BRETT's later material, a more modernized version of the early SAGE work. As such they flirt with the prog boundaries while not quite undressing them.

One disappointment is the lack of documentation on precisely the formation of SAGE for this release, as it is even debatable whether a hardcopy version exists that could be consulted. It seems a bit disrespectful not to acknowledge these more than capable accompanists, as I doubt that BRETT played all instruments.

I suppose much of the healthier stretches of BRETT's last few years were consumed with the compilation of his "Stone Survivor" 4 CD anthology set that was issued by Cherry Red a few years back. I'm not sure I will get to that one but "Eclectic" and its successor "The Devil's Whisper" see him stepping off the curb with a dignified and sly smile.

Pesniary (Pesnyary) Prog Folk

Review by siLLy puPPy
Special Collaborator PSIKE, JRF/Canterbury, P Metal, Eclectic

5 stars PESNIARY ( Песняры ), Russian for "Singers" was one of the most popular Soviet folk bands emerging from Minsk, Belarus in 1969 albeit starting off as Liavony (Лявоны). Initiated by the genius composer Vladimir Mulyavin, the band changed its name in 1970 to participate in a Soviet music competition with all different kinds of artists and successfully placed second. A rotating ensemble of various musicians, Mulyavin remained the only consistent member until his death in a car crash in 2003 which then found the band splintering into myriad variations adopting the original band's basic theme and mission.

Staring off as an oddball mix of traditional Belarusian folk music, Soviet Estrada, psychedelic pop and 60s beat music, the band eventually gravitated to the more challenging composition techniques heard in progressive rock with the third album however by the time PESNIARY arrived at its fifth album Гусляр (Guslar which refers to the oldest East Slavic multi-string plucked instrument and also the person who plays it), the band had achieved its highest musical sophistication by releasing a single track rock opera that was written by composer Igor Luchenok and Vladimir Mulyavin and based on the poem "Kurgan" by Yanka Kupala, the classic writer of Belarusian literature.

Like all operas this one narrates the tale of the fate of a guslar player who was invited to a wedding where a power hungry prince attempts to persuade him into performing his instrument. The guslar refuses stating that he sides with the population whom the prince oppresses and in the process the guslar is ordered to be executed (short story obviously). The tale was set to a cantata in 1960 for a mixed choir, soloists and symphonic orchestra and by 1976 Mulyavin was interested in setting the opera to rock music and nurtured it into musical reality for the next few years. In the meantime PESNIARY was one of the very few Soviet musical ensembles to tour outside of the USSR having found a successful tour of the American South in 1976.

While Гусляр (Guslar) was not considered progressive rock per se by the Soviet music authority, the influences of the Italian symphonic prog scene as well as quirky outbursts in the vein of Frank Zappa are evident throughout. All of this despite its lofty ambition was kept on the leash as a single album's worth of music at less than 37 minutes of playing time. The album was a smashing success with many claiming that it and band in general were the absolute creative peak in all of Belarusian rock and in many ways owes a lot to the dynamics played out in ambitious rock operas such as "Jesus Christ Superstar" only Гусляр (Guslar) was perfectly tailored to the Slavic audiences with rich Belarusian folk melodies fortifying lofty prog rock workouts all accompanied by a choral presence and familiar narrative.

The music remains exciting and dynamic throughout its entire playing time and really does feel like the perfect hybrid between classical composition, progressive rock excesses and traditional folk melodies. The album is quite ambitious and remains a popular relic from the Soviet era in the world of progressive rock stalwarts seeking treasures from behind the former Iron Curtain. Unlike many Western rock operas, this one delivers the perfect mix of various ingredients and never relies too heavily on the rock aspects although they are fully implemented when the mood calls for it. The seamless transition between musical styles while leaving the album feel like a cohesive whole was an amazing undertaking and it's obvious why this album is considered the peak of Belarusian music magic in many ways. It's also mercifully short for an opera and keeps your attention for the entire run. A true Soviet masterpiece.
