Tagging and assessment[edit]

Anglo-Celtic electric folk task force assessment statistics worklistlogcategory

Any articles that are within the scope of this project should be tagged with the project banners of WikiProject Roots music and WikiProject Regional and national music. You may also find {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} useful. To each of these banners, you should add anglo-celtic-electric-folk-task-force = yes as this will automatically put the page in the appropriate categories., such as Category:Electric folk task force articles.

The text you probably want is: {{WikiProject Roots music|class=|importance=|needs-infobox=|anglo-celtic-electric-folk-task-force=yes}}

The importance levels in the tagging scheme work as follows:

  • Top: The Electric folk article itself, and maybe one or two others
  • High: Festivals, the 4 important bands (cf. Britta Sweers), "Liege and Lief" album, etc
  • Mid: Most bands, a few important musicians and albums
  • Low: Individual musicians, most albums, a songs that have been covered by at least 3 of the Electric folk bands, etc



For main project templates, see the main project page for WikiProject Roots music and WikiProject Regional and national music.

Quick article improvements[edit]

Bands, Individuals, and Albums[edit]

  • Ensure that the article is tagged and assessed (see tagging and assessment, above)
  • In many cases, the term folk rock can be changed to electric folk (as a more precise definition). This is by no means universal, so intelligence must be applied.
  • Add some more headings
Item Bands Individuals Albums
Ensure that the article is in the appropriate category (or subcategories) Category:Electric folk groups Category:Electric folk musicians Category:Electric folk albums
Ensure that the article has an infobox {{Infobox Musical artist}} {{Infobox Musical artist}} {{Infobox Album}}
  • If the related bands have templates, include these on the page
  • If the related band has a template, include it on the page
  • Song names can often be turned into links (if there's already an article on the song)


  • Most electric folk songs are folk songs played in this style, and thus no special suggestions could be applicable
