Macabre & Mysterious Music: Folk Alley Halloween Stream

The following image is a screen shot from FolkAlley.com where you can listen to a 5-hour stream of Halloween-appropriate folk music. (Click the image to go there.) Once you’ve arrived, locate and choose your listening option in the “listen” area, shown below. A small independant window will pop up, and you’ll likely be greeted by: This is the Halloween music stream bwah-ha-ha! Then you’ll join the music stream, in progress.

‘Seems like a great soundtrack for crafting or cooking. Many of the songs are actually stories, so it’s not an ideal background for writing or studying.

If you know of a cool, creepy, macabre or mysterious song, drop me a comment. I’m always looking for good stuff.

    I have a whole collection of songs that are on my “murder” playlist … most folk songs, like Where the wild roses grow, so I think I will like this.

    • I love that you have a murder playlist. I have a few different lists that folks think are creepy – my favorites are “late night” which is heavy on old blues and bluegrass, and “for writing horror” which has a lot of instrumental stuff – much of it from Midnight Syndicate.

      I’m hoping to settle down for an afternoon of knitting to the folk music stream. I suspect there’s some great stuff that I could add to either of my lists in there.

  2. Ok, sometimes I’m device-challenged. LOL I clicked on the image, Clicked Listen. Then wasn’t offered anything but regular music. What am I doing wrong? A 3 hr session was offered but nothing remotely Halloweeny ( a word from the dictionary of Deb).

    • I clarified things in the post. I’m betting you clicked the red Folk Alley logo, rather than the screen shot image. I like the station a lot, but I had some real trouble figuring out how to access the music I was looking for too. I hope it makes more sense now.

    Love this! I found a short playlist on a different website but it was just noises! My dog didn’t like the wolves howling in it very much, but listening to something spooky while you craft or cook makes the experience that much more enjoyable. Thanks for sharing!
