Swining Saturdays #7 ~ Folky Top 5

Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.

Hey lovely readers!
Its time for another swinging top 5!!! Oh what do you think of my pic for Swinging Saturdays??? I want to thank one of my classmates for creating this, for one of the projects we had!!! So THANK YOU, you know who you are!  Todays top 5 will be Folky, as in Folk music!! It's another genre I love, I have a lot of folk music on my computer, from well know bands to lesser known band. I made a nice mix of both in this top 5!!

1. Mumford and Sons ~ Timshel

At the moment Timshel is my favourite song, I like the multi vocals it sounds awesome! I haven't listened to their new CD, Babel, yet but will get to that, the old one Sigh No More is awesome! 

2. The Civil Wars ~ 20 Years

They did a song with Taylor Swift for The Hunger Games, Safe and Sound. I loved it and decided to download their album which is beautiful!

3. Laura Marling ~ Rambling Man

I came across Laura Marling while watching Lowlands (a dutch music festival) on television. I couldn't stop watching it was beautiful and great to watch. Really entranced by it!

4. Flogging Molly ~ If I Ever Leave This World Alive

Don't think they need an introduction, this is THE BEST FOLK BAND AROUND!!!! HUGE FAN!!!! They have about 10 people on stage, with all kind of instruments!!! They are awesome live!!! Seen them twice, I can say it is a unique experience!!!

5. Ha Ha Tonka ~ Close Every Valve To Your Bleeding Heart

I am not sure where I found them, I think their was a song in the Twilight playlist, I found the name rather strange so it spiked my curiousity, turns out their music is great!

So that's it for my Top 5 this week!!!
What is your Top 5 this week? 
Want to host Swing Saturdays next week? Send me an email:  Would love to hear what kind of music you like!


  1. I have loved basically everything that I've heard from both The Civil Wars and Mumford and Sons, so even though I haven't heard those songs you featured, I know I would love them.

    I really need to check out the other artists you mentioned.

    Great post. :)

    1. Thanks Kaitlin!!! Be sure to check out Flogging molly if you like Mumford and Sons you might like them too! I don't always pick the songs that have been popular on the radio and such.. Which makes it more fun because I get to introduce them to you! :)
