Fifteen years ago, for the 1997 Northwest Folklife Festival, a group of singers came together to join Pete Seeger for a special performance. And fifteen years later, that group—the Seattle Labor Chorus—is still going strong. The group has evolved into a nonprofit organization dedicated to economic justice, social justice, and the fundamental right of all workers to organize as a means of securing a living wage. It describes itself as the "musical voice of labor in Seattle, " and the group appears at rallies, protests, union meetings, and on stages around the Seattle area to inspire and educate in four-part harmony.
Northwest Stories has been made possible, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Local videographer Doug Plummer produced the videos along with Deborah Fant, Deputy Director of Northwest Folklife, and Kelli Faryar, Programs Manager.
