French Music

Does anyone know of any good, CLEAN French folk musicians? I already listen to Lilian Renaud and I LOVE his music, but I’m looking for a couple other artists, maybe like him... and, please only list artists that have clean songs!

I listen to Alibert, Emile Vacher, Frehel, Georgel, Georgius, Maurice Chevalier, and Mistinguett. Not sure if they count as "folk", more like early jazz (1910-1930).

I'd recommend Coeur de Pirate! She is a great Quebecois singer and pianist.

Not contemporary but Maxime Le Forestier was big in the 70's with a great folk voice - San Fransisco and Ca sert a quoi both stand the test of time for me.
