Joe Hill 100 Roadshow was launched in Chicago by musicians and labor activists nationwide on May 1 (May Day: International Workers Holiday), and culminates in Salt Lake City, November 2015. It gathers some of our finest performers to celebrate the colorful Swedish-born migrant worker, songwriter, poet, cartoonist and leading member of International Workers of the World (IWW, the “Wobblies”), wrongly executed in 1915.
