robynzeppelyn Posted December 28, 2007 Share Posted December 28, 2007 I'll post this in the "newbies" section since I am new. I am curious about Robert Plant/Led Zeppelin's interest in old folk music and/or folk tales from the British Isles. I have heard it from a local radio station (that gives all kinds of neat info about the music they play) that Plant is inspired by this stuff. I can hear that, what with all the references to battles and seasons and weather. I love the songs that sound mystical and dreamy like "The Battle of Evermore," and I am wondering if there is old music that sounds like this (acoustic instruments and wailing vocals). It's my absolute favorite sound, so I just want to know if there is some way to hear it beside in the Zeppelin songs I already know. I am afraid to just go online and buy a "medieval" or "renaissance" music collection, because some people have wacky ideas about what those time periods really were. Anyhow, thanks! --Robyn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
