We’ve been longtime fans of folk, and with the recent passing of a few greats we decided this Thursday was a good one to step back, listen to some good pickin’, have a few sips of moonshine, and check out some handmade goods that honor the tradition of folk in tribute.
Medium Folk Yeah Ladies Crew Neck by DowdyStudio. $29. Whiskey, banjos, and some serious folk style, all rolled into one! This t-shirt will proudly (and stylishly) proclaim your love of folk, whether you’re kicking back or out on the town. We love the hand drawn lettering, the totally comfortable fabric, and the flat out awesomeness of this shirt. Earl would be proud.
Woody Guthrie Tribute Linocut Print by HorseAndHare. $15. Hey Woody Guthrie, we made you this print. Well, actually, the awesome peeps over at Horse And Hare did, but you get the idea. A hand pressed linocut, this print exemplifies one of Guthrie’s most famous sentiments perfectly. Simple and strong, we firmly believe that this idea and this piece of art really can kill facists. And that’s a pretty awesome thing.
Oval Serving Plate with Banjo Playing Badger by jimbobart. $150. It seems like banjos are everywhere these days, so why not on your table too? Especially if they’re being played by badgers. In red underoos. Hand drawn on bone china, this guy is Wes Anderson meets Martha Stewart (with a twist). He’s happily pickin’ away on his strings while you’re pickin’ away at your food, and the best part is when you’re done eating, you still get to admire this kick ass little guy (and his red undies).
Pete Seeger “Pete Seeger Sings American Ballads” Original 1975 Record by DropTheNeedle. $29.95 plus 15% off! All right, enough of this talk, now it’s time to listen. Turn off the computer, drop the needle on this vintage vinyl, sit back with some buddies, and enjoy every note of this amazing record. Pete Seeger has always been a-okay in our book, and it’s time to spend some time appreciating him-and others like him-who have helped make our world, both musical and otherwise, what it is today.
