Walk down memory lane

Utah Phillips, 1935 – 2008, was an American labour organizer, folk singer, storyteller, poet and the “Golden Voice of the Great Southwest.” He described the struggles of labour unions and the power of direct action, self-identifying as an anarchist. He often promoted the Industrial Workers of the World in his music, actions and words.

    Utah’s record, We Have Fed You All a Thousand Years (released 1983, on Philo) was recorded at a couple of Vancouver Island gigs which were in support of “Solidarity” movement. There are mixed feelings about that little bit of our history, how it came out, but as Utah reminded us very well, is so important to remember.
    Thank you for your work to that end with this blog.
