Urban Folk is a form of folk music which combines elements of traditional folk and post-punk/new wave influences. It got its name from the fact that the songs often reflect urban life. The style borrows more from the "Feeling" of punk (i.e. the directness and, often, the political subject matter) than the actual sound. It is closely related to anti-folk.
