From textile mills, to coal fields, to the great factories of our cities, workers have rallied to songs of labor. The songs tell of heavy work, unjust conditions, and union struggles.  American workers have given us a rich heritage of native folk songs that reflect the lives of the people—men and women, black and white, native and foreign born—who built our country.  Historian and musician Gregg Kimball, along with Sheryl Warner and Jackie Frost, will sing and discuss the songs that grew out of the American Labor Movement and played a major part in shaping America’s folk heritage.
