Redirected from Folk rock
The genre developed from the folk music of Bob Dylan and earlier musicians, the rock music of the British Invasion, and also the country music of Hank Williams and others. Folk-rock combined with experimental aspects, found for example in The Incredible String Band[?], eventually developed into prog rock.
Turkey, during the 1970s and 1980s, also sustained a vibrant Folk Rock scene, drawing inspirations from diverse ethnic elements of Anatolia, the Balkans, Eurasia and the Black Sea region and thrived in a culture of intense political strife, with musicians in Nationalist and Marxist camps. See Music of Turkey for detail.
Not all of these performers were limited to folk-rock, but all had folk and rock elements.
