Joe Hill; The Show That Never Died   Leave a comment

Back in November, we celebrated the life of Joe Hill at the Anchor Pub in Everett.  We enjoyed it so much we decided to take it, in various iterations to venues around the area.

Friday night we will be bringing it to Couth Buzzard Books in Greenwood.  Mike Dumovich, Dan Roberts (sans Whateverly Bros.), and I will be there from the first show, with Shannon Beck joining us to offer her interpretations of “Bread and Roses”, “I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night,” and “Rebel Girl” with a few additional songs thrown in.  Shannon is an excellent performer and talented writer in her own right.

In addition, we will be featuring Mark Hillman in the character of Joe Hill to add authenticity to “the man who never died” theme.  Mark begins his narration in Joe’s native Swedish.  He confessed that his accent is more that of a Finnish-Swedish accent but we assured him our audience would kindly let it go….

Gonna be a good show!

See you all there.
