Anyone for Freak Folk?

My son told me about a new genre, Freak Folk, and said it's in this article he read.  While Niels van Poecke might be really digging into this too much... I did find it very interesting; and the second article had many more names that I could associate with; like M. Ward and the Vertiver (more on them later)

The New Weird Generation I

The New Weird Generation II

Niels van Poecke is lecturer in Cultural Sociology at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. He is the author of the book The tragedy of tragedy, on Nietzsche, Wagner, and blues music (in Dutch: De tragiek van de tragedie, over Nietzsche, Wagner en bluesmuziek).
