This year is the centenary of the death of organizer, activist and songwriter Joe Hill. It's also the 100th anniversary of Ralph Chaplin's song "Solidarity Forever." Let's celebrate with an evening of songs about work, songs of the Labor movement and songs that have raised the cry for justice for a hundred years. Experience the power of song to inspire and empower with songs by Joe Hill, Woody Guthrie, Florence Reece, Phil Ochs, Harry Stamper and more. From the Lawrence, Massachusetts strike to the I.W.W. in the Northwest and the struggles for justice today, Chico Schwall and friends share the music and the history and invite you to sing along!
