Basically, the point of an album club is to discover more music and/or be able to intelligently discuss/analyze/listen to it.
Oh ok. That makes sense... not that intelligent discussion is a personal strong-suit.

I guess that's why I was wanting to clarify what sort of artists would come under the folk umbrella if I was going to nominate an artist.


Thanks for the feedback.

It's pretty much however you define it. If the majority disagrees that it qualifies as "folk" than it probably won't get through the voting round anyway. So just go for it

I was going to wait two weeks, but it looks like discussion for the first album is pretty much over, so maybe Monday.

Couple of folk artists I would be interested in are Bert Jansch and June Tabor. Anyone recommend a noteworthy album by either of these two artists?

Checked out a bit of Bert Jansch that hasn't really impressed me but got Ashore by June Tabor which is a good listen so far.

Here's a cover of Elvis Costello's Shipbuilding from that album;

I love Bert Jansch's debut album and his album, Birthday Blues.

I was going to suggest Nico - Chelsea Girls as a SHAC candidate but I was reading about how much she hated the album. Apparently the strings and flutes were added in production and Nico couldn't stand them.

Honestly, I prefer Desertshore. The Marble Index is good, too, but it is completely saturated with her harmonium playing. The monotony of it all makes it less desirable to listen to...
