Is there any other style of music with more personality than folk? Not likely! Since it's completely the product of culture, there are no two places where folk music is the same. That can also be said of the instruments used to play it, and this section is where you'll find the dozens of different folk instruments that form the heart and soul of concert halls and music festivals from coast to coast.
With so much to choose from, you'll find something for you no matter which instruments you play. If you like to use air to make music, then the selection of harmonicas, melodicas, accordions and even kazoos deserves a close look. For the versatile player, you'll appreciate sets like the Hohner Blues Bender Harmonica 5 Pack, providing a complete range of harps so you'll always have the right one, no matter which key you need.
Stringed instruments just may have the biggest share of the folk scene, so it's no surprise that there are all kinds of those for your consideration as well. Looking for a little Hawaiian charm? Here are all the ukuleles you could possibly ask for. Maybe you're more of a down-home Southern type? If so, kindly direct your attention to the impressive range of banjos. Those are just the beginning of a string selection that also includes staples like the mandolin, steel guitar, resonator guitar, strumstick and more.
There's no doubt about it: folk music really is in a class all its own, and so are its instruments. Everything that you see in these pages has a rich history of culture. In fact, many folk instruments are the products of simple down-to-earth innovation, descended from makeshift instruments that grew over the generations into something more. With any of these great folk instruments in your collection, you'll be well on your way to growing your musical career as well.
