Folk Music
    #1550406 - 05/15/03 09:52 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I was wondering if anyone here has tripped to folk music? You know, singer-songwriter style like early Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Kingston Trio, Leonard Cohen, or Peter Paul and Mary. I was just wondering about this because I was thinking about how a lot of folk music has really deep lyrics, so I was wondering if those lyrics might provide something cool to trip off of.

Why not just try it? The only sure fire way to know if it's good, is to listen to it yourself :smile: Trust me, giving new things a listen leads to a very interesting experience :laugh:

I agree with Sheepish.  Listening to anything new is a very cool experience.  I'm a huge Bob Dylan fan and wouldn't hesitate for a minute to jam to his tunes on a trip.  Can't really tell you why, but I haven't yet.  Perhaps next time :cool:

Anyone have any suggestions for good folk music, and if you have found it conducive to the trippin' state?

Ani DiFranco is awsome folk music to trip to... there is just so much emotion behind it just carries you away... Her newer stuff has a lot of really good messages that can get you thinkin'.

So if she dies
And if you write of it
Being a writer and shit
Dulling it so you sleep again at night,
Alone or telling it to whores
Their minds are dull
But oh their cunts are in the proper place
You pay them but sometimes they like it too
And feel your wounds more eagerly than they feel you,
-- E. Hemmingway, Paris ca. 1926

I would definately recommend folk music. I personally think it goes better with shrooms than the typical Trance/Electronic stuff that everybody recommends. Some of those old musicians were enlightened far beyond their time. I would personally recommend anything by Jerry Garcia and Dave Grisman. Although that music isn't particularly old it has moved me to tears more than once while trippin.

Funny you should bring this up. I'm going to a folk/bluegrass festival Labor Day weekend and I'll probably be tripping most of the time I'm there. This same festival was the setting of my first Acid experience when I was 17. One of my most viviid memories of the trip was hearing the folk music from the main stage echoing through the trees. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.

Grab up a C.D of Old & in the way. It's One of jerry garcias bands. I never thought i could dig bluegrass when i was 14, but i got that C.D. for christmas and it blew my mind. I'll burn you a copy if you like. If you pay for S&H. PM me if interested.

Yeah, Bluegrass can be some pretty crazy shit. Good bluegrass musicians are ten time faster and more skilled that most rock musicans. If you want some good stuff to trip on check out some Sam Bush. He's truely a god on the mandolin. His newer stuff isn't just straight bluegrass either, it's kind of a rock/grass fusion. Once you get past the hillbilly/deliverance image associated with bluegrass it's some pretty cool stuff.

Leonard Cohen, while one of the saints as far as I'm concerned, always brings me down while depressed - even his positive stuff. I think I associate it too much with a particular period in my life (and my one 'bad trip') and go spiralling too easily.

Especially "Avalanche" - oy!

yea Bluegrass is the shit. I never miss a festival.

Check out:

Donna the Buffalo - America
-Conscious Evolution
and others that can't come to mind...
Some Earl Scruggs is good
Scruggs - Flint Hill Special
Doc Watson is an awsome bluegrass guitarist
Doc Watson - Beaumont Rag
-Way Downtown
Doc doesn't have any really deep lyrics, jus good bluegrass
The man is 80 yrs old and blind and one of the fastest flat-pickers. He's a legend.

Blueground Undergrass is an awsome Bluegrass jam band. I was blown away when I went to my first bluegrass fest and saw them. You're bound to find a bunch of songs you like by them.

Grass Is Dead is pretty good jam bluegrass.

David Grisman is the fucking man (the mandolinist for Grateful Dead)
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band pretty fly

Peter Rowan especially

Leftover Salmon is cool for the bluegrass style music, But for Folk I love to listen to Leo Kottke and John Fahey. Fahey even made a couple records that I would consider psudeo-psychedelic.

YES

I havn't heard of the other 2. I'll download some their stuff. Everything I know bout Bluegrass or Folk comes from what I hear at festivals, banjo teacher, or ppl in jam sessions round festival campgrounds.

Bluegrass festivals are the shit

Indeed they are! I've been going to bluegrass festivals about twice a year since I was in the seventh grade.

I'd maybe listen to Dylan while tripping.

No way i'd listen to Cohen.

I got to this folk festival every year, and I think shrooming there would be incredible. This year Arlo Guthrie is going to be there, I'm excited as hell.
Folk rocks on shrooms. Never had a bad moment with it on in the background for a trip (and i'm not really too much of a folky person)
