Thanks for nominating an album, Stephen. This one looks like an interesting blend of styles and I´ll be taking a look at it when I get a chance.

In fact, I´m moving house tomorrow and will be pretty busy, and probably off-line, for a week at least, I should think. So I won´t be posting even more than I already haven´t been posting, or something like that ....

Hoping you´ll still be here when I return, Lisna.

Oooh, Boubacar Traoré. Bob Harris often plays them on the radio over here. Don't know much about them but like what little I've heard.

I only have the one album so I'm not exactly an expert but yeah some nice stuff on there.

Feel free to post a nomination for the FAIR club. It is currently on hiatus while Lisnaholic gets resettled but I'm sure he would be heartened to see some renewed interest when he is back online.

In the mean time the first post has links to past albums reviewed by the club if you want to delve into the club litany. My personal favourite would be the Huun Huur Tu which I still love despite playing it way too obsessively.

Mmm, it's an interesting and diverse list of albums. Not familiar with many of them which is nice as it's always good to be introduced to new artists. Curious to see Niyaz make the list as that's one of Aazm Ali's least 'folky' albums - but a cracking listen all the same.

Thanks for your messages, Stephen and Miss P; I´m now more or less installed in a new house - and finally have an internet connection again, so I hope we´ll be swapping FAIR music recommendations again soon. Whether I´ll have the time or energy to crank up the FAIR club in its old format again is something I´m not sure about just yet.

Nevertheless, thanks for doing a bit of promo work, Stephen, and @ Mr. Charlie, Welcome to the Folk forum! You seem to be the most promising newcomer that we´ve had in ages, so please don´t get fed up by the fact that things are so quiet here. Across the weekend, I plan to look properly at your threads; so far I´ve just glanced at Van Morrison and Eliza McCarthy and a little light came on that said, "Aha, a kindred spirit!" so I look forward to making your acquaintance in the coming days ...

A sincere thank you for the kind words and warm welcome.

It is quiet here. But it's all good. I think maybe folkies are quiet by nature...

Hello, after the long period of my absence. I want to apologise for my disappearance without any word, but my duties at the university has surprised me as the thunderbold at the daylight. I am wondering whether this thread is still alive or not.

I promise I'll at least try to give a word more often than previously.

Sir Cactoos ! I´m so glad to hear from you again !! I´m sorry to say that stephen has effectively left MB and that misspoptart does not post very often either. So I´ve stopped posting FAIR club polls; not enough people were interested.

There is still some activity going on in the other threads, though. If you have made any interesting discoveries or want to enthuse about an old favourite, you can start an independent thread or post on the "Recommendations" Sticky Thread. ( I´m still ocassionally play Xera that you recommended,btw.)

Anyway, I´m sorry you got swamped by university work, and I hope you can hang around for more than just the Christmas vacation, Sir Cactoos.
