Sub-Genres

While scheduling my single that drops tomorrow with Spotify, I had some difficulty choosing the appropriate genre. If I was being honest, I would admit to having a near-pathological love for sorting and organizing. However, this list is ridiculous. I know that I most likely fall under the main classification of “folk and roots.” Under that umbrella is a vast spectrum of specific sub-genres. I was disappointed to see that “weird folk” is not an official genre. I love all of you Weird Folk that make our genre more valid than any Spotify list ever could.

partial list of folk sub-genres:
acoustic folk
alt-country
ambient-folk
Basque folk
blues roots
