Elliott Smith, The Shins, Iron & Wine, Belle & Sebastian, The Decemberists, Built to Spill, Nuetral Milk Hotel, Wilco, The Microphones. Not really true folk but more or less similar artists that I think you'll like. I think if you listen to Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, and Woody Guthrie you'll be able to appreciate the older stuff.

The White Stripes's first albums sound a bit folkish, and some "real" folk artists I like are Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, America, Harry Nilsson.
