Songs for Labor Day

Join me for a musical tribute to Labor Day, featuring songs about working men and women, legendary Labor organizer Joe Hill, and Labor struggles in the U.S, including the fight to unionize coal mining. Featured artists include John McCutcheon, Paul Robeson, Woody Guthrie, Si Kahn, James Keelaghan, Judy Collins, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Steve Goodman. The show will start with songs about perils of fighting wildfires in the American West, including James Keelaghan’s masterful take on the 1949 Mann Gulch fire in Montana “Cold Missouri Waters”.

Happy Labor Day, and enjoy September!
