Talison Crosby is an organizer of the unorganized. After over a decade of grinding in the food & beverage industry, they eventually said enough is enough and started fighting back in a field that's been notoriously hostile to labor struggles. In addition to organizing full-time with Unite Here Local 8, they also bring their musical and songwriting skills to the movement. They became the Union Bard after finding the local music scene to be shallow and overrun by narcissists. Movement music is much less self-serving, and much more sincere. With theory and practice, megaphone and guitar, they are a tireless cultural warrior in the fight for the liberation of all workers.
Jim Page sings of politics and romance, adventure and comedy, tragedy, history, and meditations on life, death and the absurd. His improvisations are legendary, and if there’s anything to talk about that he hasn’t sung about it’s just that he was too busy singing about something else. More info be found here, https://jimpage.net. We are thrilled to share a stage with him.
Our fundraising goal for this event is $17,000.
The Seattle Labor Chorus is a non-profit, membership organization. All singers pay dues and contribute in other ways as well. Annual donations from unions and other labor organizations also enable us to support workers’ struggles at picket lines and rallies. Financial support from our fans and supporters in the community is essential to cover expenses so we can keep singing for justice, safety, peace, and power for all working people.
