Thanks for linking to my Sandy Denny blog. She seems to have mutated into American actress "Sandy Dennis" in your 4th paragraph!


... Tuareg band Tinariwen that rocks out in the Mali sands ... So glad I stumbled across this blog -- I'll check out Tinariwen. Not to give the impression that I'm well travelled, but my wife and I, our 2 girls, plus a mellow Australian couple were Land Cruiser'ed into the Sahara in Morocco by a great Berber guide, Hisham, who played electrified folk-pop the whole way, lots of instrumental stuff. It was like being a character in a Wes Anderson movie. Unfortunately, a language barrier + Arabic CD cases meant I don't know who we listened to.

Dear Berks.,
Interesting post; quite true, I suppose, either one likes it or not. Some "pure" folk gets stale; all ethnic music is limited, a mixture solves all.

Yay - Broadside Electric! "folk music with teeth!"


Do you know Mellow Candle? They might be a bit too far to the psychadelic to really classify as electric folk. But they were Of That Early Scene.
