Ever sung along to the famous labor song Joe Hill?  That’s one of local balladeer Earl Robinson’s songs.  Earl Robinson, if you don’t already know, was a prolific songwriter whose works have been covered by the likes of Paul Robeson, Frank Sinatra, and Peter, Paul & Mary, among others.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth, some folks are putting together a showcase for the 2010 Northwest Folklife Festival.  You can help make it happen by going to the Earl Robinson High Tea fundraiser this Sunday!
