The Hooky Mat Project CD

11.00

A hooky mat was a working-class floor covering made - out of necessity - from strips of cloth from old garments. It was a collaborative process. The strips of cloth were hooked into hessian stretched on a wooden frame.

The idea for this album - like a hooky mat - was to work collaboratively with some of the folk artists based in the North East of England - to produce a “musical” hooky mat. The “strips of cloth” being some of the songs Ed Pickford has written since about 1961.
