There are so many good things about fall, right? We’ve got cooler weather, pumpkins, fall festivals, apple cider, caramel drizzled everything, hoodies, boots, Halloween,… and the list goes on. One of the other reasons I love fall is that it has a soundtrack all its own. (And that soundtrack is full of heart and a bit of guitar twang.)
As you may know, modern folk music is among my favorite genres. That’s thanks in part to The Lumineers, Brandy Carlisle, Mumford & Sons, and so many other artists you probably have never heard of. There’s something about folk and Americana that lends itself to this time of the year. For me, fall is like a big ol’ hug that makes me feel warm and happy. Folk or folkish music does the same. Do you know what I mean?
I’m calling this new Tuesday Tunes playlist Falling For Folk. (I made another folk music playlist last fall. You can listen to that here.) This latest collection is mostly new-to-me songs with a few old favorites sprinkled in. I think it’s perfect to play at a fall gathering, on your way to the pumpkin patch, or while you’re whipping up something warm and tasty in the kitchen. Per usual, I’ve been listening to this playlist non-stop for the past couple weeks. I love it and hope you do, too.
If you want to fall into folk with me, you can listen to this playlist below or find it here on Spotify.
