I'm trying to find a good folk/acoustic artist. The kind of music you play around a fire. Nothing stupid, I'd perfer something more emotional. I'm pretty new to this style of music and have no idea where to start at all.

Could anyone direct me towards a good artist?

Greg Gaffin the singer from bad religion is in a separate band that plays folk and acoustic and they're very good, so you should check em out.

Old Crow Medicine Show is by far my favorite "Folky" band.
Also try the Felice Brothers or M. Ward.
