Can you recommend other good movies that feature folk music?

I'm looking for movies that feature folk music in an interesting way other than the ones I've listed below (not many). I've mostly loved American and Irish folk music in the past along with some Australian bush band/string fusions but I'm pretty open-minded.

So I've just watched 'A Mighty Wind' for the eleventy millionth time and I'm of course looking forward in a slightly carnal way to 'Inside Llewyn Davis'. 'Dogfight' is an interesting movie for all kinds of reasons, not least of which is the folk music that Lili Taylor's character is so into.
I don't like country music at all and I know that folk music sometimes straddles that line precariously. I'm more about 'Mitch and Mickey' and much less about 'The Main Street Singers', if that helps.
