Thanks all, only heard of about half of those, so plenty to investigate. And what about my third question - is this another "golden age" of the genre, at least in comparison to the 80's-early '00s. (And I'm talking mainly about English here, because for Celtic the 80's was a golden age, with Runrig, Clannad, Capercaillie etc being at their best.)

Phil , I love crossover bands , Afro Celts, Peatbog Faeries , Jim Moray etc etc and Thrash Folk Bands like Eluvetitia , so genres become very blurred .....and it doesn’t matter .Music is just music

Phil, hardly a golden age I think when so many music venues are closing.
People are used to ‘ free’ music in pubs,  so paying 5/10/12 pounds to see someone you don’t know becomes rarer.
There is some wonderful songwriting out there at present, most unnoticed by media / radio.
If it is a golden age then it is that vaguely underground scene of bands / artists surviving by having other income streams(!) and being cottage industries. 3 Daft Monkeys, Ange Hardy, Lucy Ward, Darlingside, Trials of Cato, Banter, Willows, John Palmer Acoustic Band, Merry Hell, Phantom Voices , Chaplin Wickwar, Luke Jackson, ....I could go on....

Sorry, as a civil servant I can't help categorising - it just comes naturally  Smiley ….. but, yes, certainly if it is a golden age, that would only be for us enthusiasts in the know and not for the poor musicians & venue promoters trying to make a living. A golden age for festivals perhaps ...

I can thoroughly recommend Crooked Weather, both studio & live.

I am immensely fond of The Leylines - although they describe  themselves as "Not quite folk" , I certainly put them in the same category as folk rock, fiddle driven great energy  - however  they play only their original songs and don't  electrify-up old folk songs like Steeleye Span or Bellowhead etc do.  Their new 2nd album Recover Reveal  is a cracker
