Folks have been asking me for sort of an introduction playlist to filk music for a little while now, and while I don’t think I’d ever be able to make a perfect primer to introduce people to all the genre has to offer, I figured it was far more doable to make one with a fair amount of variety of my favorites (at least, of the ones I actually have access to recordings of) – with a mix of old classics, new stuff, and some newer covers of songs that have been around for a while – and hope it would stand for itself. Enjoy!
