The Canoe Shop Playlist

Posted on July 08 2018, by Nick Taggart

Our canoe shop sits down by the water, next to the dock. Ostensibly it's where Whitney maintains and repairs the canoes, paddles, packs, and the rest of our gear. But, in practice, you'll often find several of us there, sitting at one of the benches tapping away at a laptop, perched on one of the old ammunition boxes reading the Graeber's Landing Daily, or just hanging out looking out over the lake. This may be because when the  double doors are open, the entire shop fills up with a golden light; or because nothing smells better than cedar shavings; but probably because Whitney (in spite of or because of his remarkable age) has the most entertaining and eclectic taste in music. Here's what he's playing today.
