Fresh songs

Edited: September 7, 2017, 9:48 PM · I'd like to add some fresh blood to my repertoire, and I was wondering if anyone knew any folk-like songs with the slow moving qualities similar to Ashokan Farewell? Or just any "pretty" non-classical tunes?

Thank you,
Pat

Check also "the dubliners". They have some tunes you might like.
