My daughter bought me a few CDS I hadn't heard of for my birthday, the above may be worth a listen I reckons. I'm 47, love old Bowie and have lost the plot in Ibiza more than a few times.
Try any (or indeed all) of Bat For Lashes albums as 'your starter for ten' :-)
I think you need a Laura odyssey on Spotify:
Blue Roses (essentially Laura Groves and whoever is on hand for a recording or a gig)
I'd like to say Laura Nyro but I'm not familiar enough with her works.
Neil Diamond's "12 Songs" and "Home After Dark" albums
That'll keep you busy for a while!
Treat The Unthanks and Show of Hands with extreme caution (or disdain :-) )
I think The Decemberists' album "Picaresque" might be enjoyable to you.
just getting into Jake Bug atm :)
worth a listen :)
bat for lashes
Belleruche - Northern Girls
Freakpower in Dub - My heart sings ( sublime IMO anyway)
Kim - don lee doo
Kim - Uptown ( this is FAB***)
Kim - Shes a Lion
Fried Funk food - George
Fried Funk Food - Freak of da week
D,Note - Garden of Earthly delights ( 2 mixes)
The stunning - got to get away
The stunning - Heads
The Stunning - Romeo's On Fire
Aslan - Crazy World
Liam O Maonlaí - Sadhbh Ní Bhruinneallaigh
Bon Iver, Portugal. The Man, Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit
Jessie Ware is quite good.

Ignor BS re Show of Hands - I reckon they'll be right up your street. And of course them and Seth Lakeman ARE from up your street, or Devon at least.
You might also like Chris Wood - try Handmade Life, though Trespasser is also good
If you haven't already, get some Nick Drake
Rumer, Ben Howard, Fleet Foxes, Michael Kiwanuka.
Anybody but Mumford & Sons...
Of Monsters & Men. Or if you prefer (the original), Edward Sharp & The Magnetic Zeros
Seconding some suggestions already made.
Bat for Lashes - All three of her albums are sublime. Saw her live in Inverness a couple of weeks ago, might be just a little bit besotted with her! I reviewed her too :-) http://invernessgigs.co.uk/2012/10/19/bat-for-lashes-takes-control/
Julie Fowlis, can't really go wrong with any of her albums.
Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_e8RRTT0r8 (Americana type stuff)
First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gekHV9DIjHc (They sound like they're from the US but are actually Scandinavian)
Speyside Sessions - project by yon bloke from Grays Anatomy, proceeds go to Save the Children http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1JiSONS9k8
Wow guys, thanks for taking the time to give me suggestions! I am sat in a cheap hotel in Bournemouth tonight so will do some you tube searching!
I'll add to the votes for First Aid Kit. A lot better than some of this painfully faux-earnest energetic Brit-folk like Bellowhead :-)
Alt - J An Awesome Wave
Not everybody's cup of tea but I loves it
Alt J, The Walkmen and just about anything from the Greenman Festival line up.
You are an elitist. My impression is that Sam doesn't suffer from the same complaint.
Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart.
> You are an elitist. My impression is that Sam doesn't suffer from the same complaint.
I recommended two Neil Diamond albums and have been enjoying listening to The Mavericks in the car for well over a week. How is that elitist?!
Joanna Newsom might be right up your street.
Always happy to admit to being wrong.
Afro celt sound system should be right up your street.
If you want something different and new but old have a listen to Hong Kong Ping Pong on soundcloud.com
oh and these made me smile recently
...hey y'ole dude, rock out to 'band of gold' freda payne, 'xanadu' (the album), 'turn on, tune in, cop out' freak power, most stuff by Santana, or a bit of sweet 'n' soul with your slippers - most stuff by Eva Cassidy....
You got to try some Sufjan Stevens, also Davendra Banhart.
Celtic trad stuff: The Furey Brothers
Really good arn't they.
hey cool, i do housework with 'the boss' (bruce springsteen to you:) )....
OK Sam, it's now time to tell us what you did listen to and what you liked.
