Nashville’s Shelby Bottom Duo joins Bread & Roses Missouri to tell the story of labor activist and songwriter Joe Hill and the early U.S. labor movement. Joe Hill was executed in 1915…but not before he fanned the flames of labor discontent with his songs. Regarded as anthems of the IWW labor union (the Wobblies), Joe’s songs live on, influencing generations of social and political protest music. Join us to hear his story told through spoken word, historical images, and some new-fashioned, old-time music!
