Folk music is a music genre that is not written but rather transmitted orally. It used to be played and learned around a campfire or group gatherings, used in tribal ceremonies and various ethnic groups or among group of workers (railroad track, mines …) or groups of the same ethnics. When we think about folk harmonica we usually refer to American folk music and more specifically Folk revival a genre that became extremely popular in the 1960s with songsters like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Dave Van Ronk … largely based on the Appalachian traditional folk music. Many of those artists incorporated the harmonica as a featured instrument played in a very simple but expressive way where the harmonica is an extension of the singer’s voice and or lyrics.

Usually the harmonica used to play Folk is a 10 hole diatonic harmonica that is tuned in the  same key as the song. So if the folk song is in A an harmonica in A would be used. Harmo harmonicas offers a wide variety of diatonic harmonicas well-suited to play Folk: The Harmo Polarthe Harmo Torpedo and Harmo custom shop models all are excellent choices for Folk harmonica. The Polar offers special tunings that can be useful for some songs, for instance the natural or harmonic minor tuning can be great to accompany a minor song whereas standard tuning will be more appropriate overall. A wood comb model can be a nice touch for a warmer authentic sound. In this case Harmo custom shop models are great as they let you select the comb and cover material that you want! All those models come in all 12 keys which makes it perfect to play any Folk song on your harmonica.
