We don’t know if any of you caught Bob Dylan’s totally awesome performance at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards with the boys of Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers, but let’s just say this: it was awesome, and Dylan’s mad moves made us smile. If there’s one thing we love, it’s folk, and it turns out many Etsy peeps feel the same way.
Bob Dylan Pop Art Print 24×36 byRedRobotCreative. $125. Let’s start with the man himself-any die hard folky or Dylan fan would be lucky to have this hanging on their wall. The limited edition glycee print by artist Jim Zahniser is the electric guitar to the Newport Folk Festival: mixing things up while celebrating the genius of folk. It’s gorgeous, it’s rockin’, and it’s Bob. ‘Nuff said.
Faux Nellie Guitar Strap-Leather in Silver, Turquoise, Black, White, and Antique Black by moxieandoliver. $105. I’m not saying that I can rock out with the greats, but I am saying that if I had this kick ass guitar strap (adjustable to work with banjo, bass, or dobro as well!) I’d definitely feel like I could. The amazing dying, painting, and branding makes this strap 100% original…just like good tunes.
Bluegrass T Shirt by banditbrand. $30. We love bluegrass, and we don’t care who knows it. We also love the witty simplicity of this tee…never mind the awesometown immediacy of “I’ve-been-wearing-this-shirt-forever-even-though-it’s-brand-new” of the worn in organic cotton. Toss it on with your best beat up blue jeans and a cowboy hat and you’re ready to go.
Banjo 8×8 in print by johnwgolden. $20. We happen to own this print. We also happen to love it. Hanging in a place of honor in ye olde Meatbagz workshop, this print is equal parts backwoods twang and vintage awesome. The worn in grunge and graphic banjo illustration make us grin and yearn for the warm weather days when we’ll be hanging out on the workshop porch, pickin’ and singin’, no matter what the neighbors might think.
Leonard Cohen Felt Finger Puppet by mullishmuse. $14. We couldn’t help but include Mr. Cohen in this Shout Out. When we first came across this finger puppet we burst out laughing…and immediately reveled in the innate genius of it. The details of his suit and removable newsboy hat speak for themselves, and as mullishmuse points out in the description, Leonard Cohen Finger Puppet will not disappoint. After all, how could he? He’s Leonard Cohen. And he’s made of felt. It’s a win/win, no matter how you look at it.
