Songs of Joe Hill
Marcus Duskin

The legendary labor troubadour and martyr wrote many songs in his short lifetime. Some of them are popular and are sung often today (Preacher and the Slave, Casey Jones). Some are unknown or are rarely sung (Workers of the World Awaken, Rebel Girl, Should I Ever Be a Soldier). This workshop will cover as many Joe Hill songs as are known and that we can sing in one hour's time! Workshop participants are invited to contribute.

Marcus Duskin is the founder of Folk This!, an ensemble whose repertoire covers the spectrum of radical protest songs. Three years ago he founded the Indelible Voices Project, whose focus is to revive little known works of importance, most notable the labor musical review Pins and Needles.
