SI KAHN is a folk, bluegrass and roots music legend, once described as "a rumor in his own time.” At almost 75 years old, he is at the peak of his powers as performer, songwriter, recording artist and playwright. His songs of family, community, love, work and freedom have been recorded and performed by hundreds of artists in North America and Europe. For 52 years, he’s worked professionally as a civil rights, labor and community organizer. He has toured with Pete Seeger and John McCutcheon, and has shared concert and festival stages with such artists as Buffy St. Marie, Peggy Seeger, The Kruger Brothers, TheFairfield Four, Hazel Dickens, Ani DiFranco, and more.  On this Special Event Broadcast of WoodSongs, we are celebrating Si’s career with 3 new projects honoring this American Folk legend

Si’s most recent work ‘Mother Jones in Heaven’ is a musical about the legendary Irish immigrant social justice agitator termed "the most dangerous woman in America” by a U.S. district attorney in 1902. Vivian Nesbitt (Breaking Bad, The Night Shift, Longmire and more) portrays Mary Harris "Mother” Jones, with musical accompaniment by John Dillon about the infamous labor organizer famed for her tireless efforts on behalf of the rights of the working class. Vivian and John will perform a special selection from the performance on the WoodSongs Stage. https://motherjonesinheaven.com/
