Big Fish Audio Neo Folk

Big Fish Audio has launched Neo Folk, a sample library featuring collection of 24 contemporary Folk construction kits for the modern producer.

With the recent enormous success of artists like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, The Civil Wars, Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers, etc., the past couple years have seen Neo-Folk saturating the airwaves. Not only brought in by artists and performers, Neo-Folk has become extremely popular in commercials, film, and TV music.

NEO-FOLK is an amalgam of roots music created by the confluence of the shared traditions that make up the Americana musical ethos, specifically those sounds that are merged from Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Roots Rock, and Blues.

The spirit of NEO-FOLK draws parallels to the ideals of Americana, Indie Rock, and Indie Folk, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it draws.

This collection of 24 NEO-FOLK construction kits include all the Bluegrass and Folk instruments that embody the ever-popular genre: banjo, mandolin, dobro, fiddle, and guitar, each played with a rhythmic style based in Alternative Rock and Folk. The instruments are performed by an all star line up: Dennis Caplinger (JJ Cale, Eric Clapton) on guitar, dobro, mandolin, fiddle, banjo; session bassist Josquin des Pres; and groove master drummer Danny Barragan (Frankie J, Pitbull).

The sample library is available to purchase for $99.95 USD.
