A Beginners Guide to: Folk-Punk

Source: Reddit

Folk-Punk.  You probably instantly think of one of two things: Memes about crust punks who haven’t showered since they started sleeping on their friends sofa, that your friend on Facebook shares occasionally; or, some weird cluster-f**k of gun-loving Americans and an accordion.

The genre itself is ambiguous, and it can be difficult in determining where the line between Folk-Punk and punk lies. And if I’m honest, I don’t really think that line exists. Most acts describing themselves as Folk-Punk can also brand themselves as straight-cut Punk, depending on which is most convenient for their audience.

Anyway, here’s a little guide on the basics.
