My kinda of music... DISCOVERED

So it has been decided by me that I have discovered my FAVORITE type of music is and it is FOLK/INDIE ROCK.

Here are some of the artists that I enjoy listening to:
  • Butch Walker
  • Matt Costa
  • Damien Rice
  • Virginia Coalition
  • Glen Hansard/Marketa Irglova
  • Port O'Brien
  • Carey Ott
  • Ray LaMontagne

I wonder if this makes me an old foogie or hip since I like FOLK music. Makes me think I need to go and put on a long hippie dress, find my jesus shoes, ditch the bra, throw my arms up in the air and spin around starring at the sky because I like FOLK music. LOL

I am going with HIP because it is kinda new music. See what I got off Wikipedia:
Indie folk is a music genre that arose in the 1990s from singer/songwriters in the indie rock community showing heavy influences from folk music scenes of the 50's, 60's and early 70's. A few early artists included Beck, Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow. This genre is often closely related to others including freak folk, psych folk, Baroque pop and New Weird America.[1] This genre has been steadily growing in popularity with bands such as Fleet Foxes, Beirut and Bon Iver. It is also being aided by festivals such as Bonnaroo and Coachella.
