Having attended the four Strangefolk Reunion shows at the end of March in NYC, Burlington and Portland, I saw alot of fan made and official shirts worn by fans. With 12 years gone by since the last original lineup show, a lot of these shirts were taken from the attic, boxes or otherwise unearthed to be worn at the shows. Below is a gallery of those shirts. Thanks to Justin for sharing his online gallery – check out some old school Strangefolk shirts here
If you know when any of these shirts were printed, please leave a comment with an estimated time-frame of when the shirt was made or sold at shows. If you have a shirt that isnt featured here, contact Pete – phanart AT gmail – and share your shirt, adding to the Strangefolk Fanart record.
