By the People, For the People

Louis Armstrong famously said that “all music is folk music”–because it’s all about people connecting with other people (and, as Louis clarifies, not so much about horses singing). Well, the personal connection just got a little more intimate with London’s Folk in a Box. This little gem showed up as a suggested follow on my Twitter, and I couldn’t help but pass it along. Listeners step into this charming but janky* little box, and the folkster-du-jour plays acoustic tunes. In the dark.

They’ve already been featured at the Secret Garden Party, the Southbank Centre, Tate Britain, and several other festivals. Said of the SGP gig: “we made 2 people cry, 3 people dance, 4 people clap along and lots of people smile.” Quite honestly, I’m smiling right now just thinking about it.

*California slang: “adjective used to describe a person, place or thing which is questionable, strange, broken down, and/or just some thing you can’t think of another word for.” (Urban Dictionary)
