Northwest Folklife Festival Washington Works
The annual NW Folklife Festival celebrates music, arts and culture every Memorial Day weekend. Each year, the Festival features a cultural focus and this year’s theme is a look at labor culture in our region. Today on Music+Ideas, we discuss the culture around labor and the ever-active and ever-changing labor movements in Washington with three guests in our studios:
Debbie Fant, Northwest Folklife Festival Deputy Director.
Will Brucher, the Educator at the Washington Labor Education and Research Center at South Seattle Community College.
Conor Casey, archivist at the Labor Archives of Washington State housed at UW Libraries Special Collections. He discussed the work of Richard Correll.
