The folk music genre can refer to two very different, widely popular types of music. First, folk music can refer to traditional music. Traditional folk music may even be considered some of the first types of music ever performed or created. Multiple different cultures, religions, and groups of people created their own forms of traditional folk music and so there is a great amount of variety among traditional folk music. Traditional folk music typically has roots that are so old, the composer is unknown and the songs themselves include many traditions and stories and are thought to have evolved over many years. These types of traditional folk music are very popular and a great way to connect with culture and history.
Today folk music also refers to a popular genre of music that evolved from the more traditional folk music roots. Starting in the mid-20th century, contemporary folk music gained a huge amount of popularity. Traditional folk music was used to inspire the likes of new folk music that then also included fusions with other musical genres for songs that could be categorized as folk rock, folk metal, and electronic folk. Artists were able to incorporate the simple and unique style of folk into a more contemporary popular musical genre. These creative compilations turned into huge sensations and folk artists such as Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, and Joni Mitchell will be considered classics forever. More recently, folk music continues to stay at the top of the charts through artists such as Mumford and Sons and Passenger. All these very diverse but very successful groups of artists are able to produce music that is very different but enjoyable all the same.
