Show 031 – Labor Day (2018-08-25)

posted in: Past Shows

It’s time to get your hands dirty, because it’s Labor Day! It not only ushers in the last gasp of summer, but the date also commemorates the common workers laboring to bring home a living wage. Katie is stuck working today, which–considering the theme–is appropriate. Joe play songs and tunes celebrating those who work with their hands, whether they crew a ship, build roads, till the ground, or toil in the bowels of the earth.This show features a well-rounded crew of artists, such as Solas, Silly Wizard, The Irish Tradition, Christy Moore, Martin Carthy, Joe Heany, Frank Harte, Dublin Gulch, and the Bay Area’s Dogwatch Nautical Band.
