Although folk is not strictly related to the showband era, it was during these same years (55-85) that folk musicians came into their own as a major force on the Irish entertainment landscape and in many cases shared the same stages with their showband counterparts. In fact, many folk artists like Johnny McEvoy and Danny Doyle, ended up fronting showbands after successful stints on the folk club circuit. Below is a collection of photos of Irish folk acts from the 60, 70's and 80's.
