JE² Folk is a, hand picked, monthly playlist focusing on a different Folk subgenre or theme. (The Latest Mix will be on the Top and than every post below goes from oldest playlist down to the previous month.)

Folk August 2016 places the spotlight on songs blending folk, bluegrass with modern pop. Full of artist like firekid, Elle King and Mat Kearney.

 

 

This mix started when I noticed how I was hearing the banjo in pop songs from Artilst like American Authors & Elle King. This mix is a collection of pop artists that keep one toe in bluegrass and folk and vice versa.

Folk June 2016 places the spotlight the Fiddle aka Violin in folk & bluegrass music. 

 

I've always been a fan of the violin and this mix is a collection of known and unknown artists that incorporate it with wonderful skill and beauty. Going back as far as the 16th Century Italy, the Violin feels at home in the blue mountains of America as it does in the Sistine Chapel. I personally love it's rural quality and this, Handpicked, playlists is a collection of that sound.

folknature.pngFolk July 2016 places the spotlight on traditional Folk that evokes feelings of nature. 

 

Something about the sound of acoustic instruments, especially in more traditional Folk that reminds me of nature. I hear it and I'm instantly walking in the countryside. It was that feeling, that motivated me, when selecting songs for this mix.

 

So if you're planning to go on a nature walk, or you'd like to imagine you are, this is the mix for you.
