    At the core of any folk music genre is heart and soul capturing a simpler life in rural cultures. Depending on its origins, genres vary from Irish to Appalachian. While types of folk instruments vary depending on the genre, each instrument still offers the personality and charm of its grassroots origins. Whether it is an accordion or zither, folk instruments are a great option to use as an introduction to different regional music for young players.

    Stringed folk instruments dominate this musical category. Thanks to their use by bands like Mumford & Sons and Of Monsters and Men, the genre is hot with a reignited interest in all things folk. Some like the dulcimer and banjo evoke a sense of nostalgia for rural American life while others, like the mandolin, blend well with guitars, and even come in electric versions.
