Best Folk Music of 2008?

November 26, 2008

It's that time of year to reflect back on all the great music released in 2008, and to compile our annual "Best Of" lists. We'll be posting our individual Folk Alley staff picks on the website soon, but this is the place for you - the Folk Alley audience - to tell us your favorite new CDs released in '08 (so far), your favorite new musical discoveries (e.g. new artists or bands that you recently discovered,) or how about your favorite new songs of the year?

Please add your favorites for 2008 below, and help us build our Best of 2008 Side Stream that will be available on-demand at the end of December and through the month of January.

Let's hear 'em!
