Hi Josh, Nice to meet you!
You won't find too many new artists around here alas - well there's a few we talk about, but they are all somehow related to Flight of the Conchords as this is a fan site for them in particular (though it's bit slow these days!). Everyone here originally came because of a love of that band and their exploits in music/movie/TV - but over time we've expanded a bit to others they have worked with and the like. Have a poke around and see what you find. Music wise I personally recommend learning about WIUO (Wellington International Ukulele orchestra) and Age Prior both of whom of have associations with the boys from FOTC (Flight of the Conchords). Also the Black Seeds - though they're not folk. There's a lot of great stuff to discover regardless, even if it's not what you came here to find - so welcome, and start exploring!
