My Favorite Folk Musicians On Twitter

Posted by admin On July - 22 - 2011

Here’s a list of all the musicians that I follow on Twitter. Some of them aren’t very active, so I provided a short description to let you know what to expect.

Amanda Palmer
Oh, she’s tweeting the hell out of Twitter. She’s one of the coolest ones out there, so follow her no matter what!

The guys from Beirut sometimes tune in and they do reply from time to time to @mentions as well.

Bon Iver
I think someone else is running this account for Bon Iver but it is fun to follow nevertheless. Plus you get all the yummy info via Twitter. Can’t beat that!

David Gray
Run by the team! They actually specify that, so you don’t get the wrong idea. He’s such a gentleman.

The Bowerbirds
They are definitely worth following. They write their own tweets and they are very fun.

Bright Eyes
Mostly tour dates and promotional tweets from the band.

Fleet Foxes
I am quite sure it is them tweeting. And they are fun!

Iron & Wine
Tour dates and releases and other official stuff. Looks like Sam doesn’t like tweeting.

Jason Webley
Jason is quite active on Twitter. And he is also a cool musician, so I definitely recommend following.

Joseph Arthur
I see him tweet from time to time. I really think that is him.

Joe Purdy
Mostly promotion on Joe’s behalf – it would be nice to actually have him from time to time though.

Katie Melua
Not much going on on Katie’s Twitter feed. I really hope she will start using it soon.

Mumford & Sons
Mostly official stuff. Not much about their private lives on here, but they do reply to @mentions from time to time.

Norah Jones
Norah doesn’t like to tweet. I heard her say that in an interview once. She also said that her record company keeps trying to convince her to start. Hope they succeed.

The Low Anthem
I am not sure if it is them running this, but I like their music, so I am following for the info anyway.

Tom Waits
Official stuff. I don’t think Tom himself ever tweets… unfortunately.

And if you’ve made it this far, I wouldn’t mind if you would started following Indie Folker on Twitter as well. Thanks!
