Folk-rock

Folk rock is a musical genre, combining elements of folk music and rock music. In its earliest and narrowest sense, the term referred to a genre that arose in the United States and Canada around the mid-1960s. The sound was epitomized by tight vocal harmonies and a relatively "clean" (effects- and distortion-free) approach to electric instruments epitomized by the jangly twelve string sound of the Byrds' guitarist Roger McGuinn as used sparingly by George Harrison in 1964 and 1965.
