Folkie

A follower of the folk tradition.

May or may not have their own tankard. Often have beards (male) and Arran sweaters.

Actually not at all obvious although there are extremes. Unclear whether folkie refers to both followers and performers. At any rate, an enthusiast about things folk. May show their dedication by joining the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

Lovers of the folk tradition often follow a particular lifestyle of very informal dress - high hippy influence, long hair, beards (men), sandals, beads. Mostly but not universally very well educated and vegetarian.
