Price: Free, but donate to Folklife!

This year's labor showcase at the Northwest Folklife Festival will be Sunday May 27 from 7:00 – 9:00 in the Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center.

Featuring: John O’Connor, Linda Allen & Jerrell Davis (Rell Be Free) in their own sets. The showcase will culminate with the Seattle Labor Chorus presenting the premiere performance of an original musical docudrama, "Step by Step towards Climate Justice." With song, dialogue, and testimony, it tells the story of how local activists are fighting climate change, with actions ranging from writing a simple resolution, to turning off an oil pipeline and risking jail. At the heart of narrative are the disproportionate impacts of the fossil fuel industry on workers and their families, indigenous peoples, and communities of color.
