playlists & a giveaway: with Off the Hooks




i just love a great playlist. i think it stems back to those glorious mixed tapes days where i'd either make, sometimes receive and always always covet a fabulous collection of tunes by various great artists! for me, a personal playlist is a magical grouping of songs. *bliss!* ... so i've asked some wonderful artists if they'd make up a little playlist on a theme for this new rikrak studio series. i thought we might get a glimpse into what musically inspires these fabulous folks... i'm thrilled to present the next: playlists with Off the Hooks: rad folk music for rad crafters! and check out the other great playlists here.

...................................

brrrrr... it's 0 degrees celcius here this morning, and as the brilliant autumn leaves shimmy to the ground thoughts turn toward warming up our hands and heads and homes. so what a perfect time to welcome the lovely OfftheHooks to the rikrak studio! it's Ashley to the rescue!

warmth just exudes from Ashley's gorgeous eco-aware shop, that's filled with lovely handspun & hand-dyed yarns, & beautiful crochet and knit works. she handcrafts delights to warm everything from our hands & hearts & homes. so lovely! be sure to check out her gorgeous legwarmers, fingerless gloves & scarves to start!

AND offthehooks also offers handspun or hand-dyed yarns for the Do-It-Yourself-er in your home... i just can't stop oogling at those gorgeous, colorful yarns... so READ ON to see how you can win one! woohoo!

and her playlist is just as wonderful & warm! so without further ado, let's take a listen {love the theme!}:


....................................

theme:"rad folk music for rad crafters!"
dj: Ashley of Off the Hooks

1.) Corb Lund- This is my prairie
Corb is from southern Alberta where I'm from too! A great song about what's happening in Alberta these days with all our oil.

2.) Pete Seeger- Little Boxes.
Pete is such a great musician and spokesperson for working people around the world. That, and he always has great, handmade knit clothing! I think his wife must be a knitter, he's got on a cuddly sweater on in this video:


3.) Buck 65- Blood of a young wolf.
Buck 65 is currently one of my favorite Canadian artists; great poetry, great imagery, I like to call it "Hobo hop". He also hosts the Drive radio show on CBC radio 2 every weekday- love it!


4.) Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings- This Land is Your Land.
If you ever have a chance to see these guys live, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! Sharon can sure groove- I don't know how the band keeps up with her!


5.) Bruce Cockburn- Laughter.
What can I say- One of the greats. This is early, early stuff.


6.) Neil Young - After the Garden is Gone.
Another great, and another artist you must see in concert.


7.) Little Miss Higgins- Dirty Old Tractor Song.
What could be better than a song about planting a garden? Love her guitar and country style, from my neighbour province,
Saskatchewan!

8.) Old Man Luedecke- I quit my job.
I always think of Etsy's "quit your day job" when I hear this song! A great celebratory song about everyone's dream come true!


9.) Harry Manx- Take This Hammer.
Harry Manx makes great music here he is live- pretty amazing!


10.) Johnny Cash- Man in Black.
I can't make any playlist without including Johnny Cash.


....................................

in Ashley's own words: "I LOVE listening to great tunes while I'm spinning yarn, crocheting or knitting up a storm, or kettle dyeing fleece in the kitchen. I really love music that conveys an important message or tells a story; whether it be about peace, equality, treading lightly on the earth, or music that makes a statement or educates the listener about something important happening now or in history. What's even better is when this is combined with great musical talent. I find when I am crafting, my mind opens up and I really get into the music. Just like the handmade movement, I think it's so important to support local artists who are musicians. I've been so lucky to see some great artists perform over the last couple of years, and a few are included below."
....................................

woowee! i LOVE this playlist, Ashley!
so many of my very own faves on here, too! i'd love to have a rockin' craft party with you! :)

  22. Mmm... Those yarns look fantastic... I don't usually knit, but with something like that, it'd be worth learning how and getting inducted just to use it! Okay, I checked out the shop, and I have to say, my favorite winter wear item? A tie. A tie between the Bamboo-silk wristwarmers in Lichen
    (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30334749) and the Willow Loop Scarf. If pressed, the scarf would probably win. So pretty. o.o

    ReplyDelete
  25. Okay... Folksy songs...
    How to choose just one thing?

    My music tastes are pretty odd, and I don't craft nearly enough, but I can definitely suggest Kate Bush's album in two disks, Aerial, I think, Sea of Honey & Sky of Honey, which let me zone out and concentrate peacefully while painting.

    I also suggest the sweet sweet tones of obscure but beautiful Jennifer Noxon, especially "Wind's Secret", one of the sweetest songs I know.

    That frosty yarn looks terrific and I wants it! :)

  151. as for craftin' music, i'm all about the avett brothers these days (one of my current favorite songs being Kickdrum Heart). but some CSN&Y, bob dylan, and the felice brothers get a lot of play too.

    i can't wait to check out all the songs on this playlist! sounds like it's totally up my alley.

    I've been searching for a yarn like that since a while, seems like it could match perfectly that pair or mittens I got in Europe last year that are IMPOSSIBLE to match !
