So I got bored and decided to make a compilation of songs by my favourite folk and folk-punk artists. I tried to only include songs by bands whose usual sound this is, but I ended up breaking that rule for Chewing on Tinfoil and RVIVR because I love those songs too much. And also for We Versus The Shark because cheesey joke. I did stick to a ‘one song per artist’ rule though, or this would have just ended up as The Mountain Jackson Goats, Ohio.

*I’m pretty sure my habit of separating artists from songs/albums with a - and not a comma in lists like this is entirely because of D,O
