Folk is a broad musical genre that includes traditional songs—many of them transmitted orally, with unkown composers—from around the world. Perhaps the most popular form of music music emerged in the United States during the revival of the 1950s and ‘60s, when performers like Joan Baez, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell rose to prominence. Contemporary singer-songwriters and bands like Aoife O’Donovan, Allison Russell, and the Milk Carton Kids continue to take folk in new directions.
