Contemporary songs written in traditional style

The songs on this list are written in the relatively-recent past, in traditional style or theme and have been accepted, in our opinions, into the folk repertoire. 

Some of these songs, like "The Queen of Argyll" have been so solidly adopted by the folk community, that they are occasionally mistaken as "traditional."  Please be sure to give credit where credit is due when performing songs before a live audience, and check on the licensing status of songs before you record them for fun or profit.
