Contemporary Folk


Since the 1970s a genre of "contemporary folk", fueled by new singer-songwriters, has continued to make the coffee-house circuit and keep the tradition of acoustic non-classical music alive in the United States. Such artists include Chris Castle, Steve Goodman, and John Prine. While from London The Pogues and Ireland The Corrs brought traditional tunes back into the album charts.
