Really good midi of the folk tune "the red-haired boy" (try isolating the 3rd channel, the banjo sounds really good)

Really good cover of Neil Young's Old Man on electric slide guitar:

Some Finnish neo-electro-folk by Suistamon Sähkö:
Rappaus putoaa

Jyskyjärven kautta

Kankkuspäivästä Karjala


And to contrast this off, some slightly more traditional acapella stuff by Rajaton:
Kavala

Läksin minä kesäyönä käymään

I quite like Kveldssanger by Ulver. Its fairly simple but does the job

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWTpdOPAZDw

I think you could easily replace the age of empires soundtrack with this while playing and still have yourself a similar experience
