Siasma na nGael for Mother Jones!


Mother Jones Tribute produced by Old St. Pat's  March 2019

Bravo Old St. Patrick's Church which produced the story of Mother Jones’ life struggle through narrative and song on Tuesday.


Originally scheduled for Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the CSO strike led it to be transferred to Historic Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. 


It was "Mother Jones meets Broadway" with the talented musicians, singers, and dancers. The show beautifully conveyed her belief in the dignity of work and the rights of workers!


Proud that our board members played a part in advising for the event. Brilliant renditions of all the labor songs. Only wish that it could be repeated.

The show opened with our set of photos of workers including child laborers, in the early 20th century. Rosemary Feurer provided many of the photographs for the opening Montage.
