I was inspired to start this thread after watching the BBC Folk Music Awards on TV last night. I've always been interested in mixing up musical styles, so here's a few to get you started. What you got?

These guys were on the awards show last night. Terrific stuff.. Afro Celt Sound System.

Posted on another thread a while back, but I love this one so reckon it's worth a repeat.

Delhi2Dublin. Tablas work surprisingly well with Irish jigs.

And Fred Morrison, playing uillean pipes with a bluegrass band. I know these are closely related styles, but I have it on good authority that bluegrass is fiddle, guitar (strummed or steel), banjo, bass and mandolin, no other instruments need apply. The pipes work so well here, they ought to loosen it up a bit!

This thread deserves more action so I'll tempt the WBF gods and re-post this from the other thread. I think this will qualify as a Cultural Crossover. :)

Andrew "Bubba" Kim, who is in the Delhi2Dublin video and was a core member of the band for a long time playing sitar and various other things, is a dear old friend of ours. He's doing an educational solo gig now as "Andy the Musical Scientist", demonstrating scientific principles and entertaining kids via the medium of improvised instruments. I'll play with him any time I get the chance.

Isla. Loreena McKennett's style mixes African, and Eastern influences with a heavy Celtic accent. She mixes impeccable musical skill talent with fantastic orchestrations and smart lyrics. One of my all time favorites. Listen to this if you're not familiar with her.

It's all great. I love Treacherous Orchestra, which reminded me of another large folk band, Bellowhead. This is also from the Shrewsbury Folk Festival but back in 2010.

Brass section, strings and traditional instruments.

Cold Haily Rainy Night was already posted by Nick in #6. Great stuff though, I'm not complaining BY:D.

I like the Benjamin Zephaniah track a lot.

^ Great. I saw Ravi Shankar at the Liverpool Philharmonic in 1969 (I think) with the great Alla Rakha on Tabla.
