To celebrate Labour Day, here’s a great song written by one of Edmonton’s great musical treasures, Maria Dunn, to celebrate 100 years of the labour movement in Alberta.
Want to find out more about Maria? Her website is here. I note that she has a new CD coming out this month:
Maria Dunn’s brand new CD Piece By Piece will be available Canada-wide on September 17, 2012 at your favourite retail outlets and digital download sites. Distributed in Canada by www.outside-music.com and produced by Shannon Johnson (Juno award winner with The McDades for 2007s Bloom), the 8 songs on Piece By Piece acknowledge and celebrate the resilience and grace of immigrant women working at a Canadian clothing factory over its 93-year history.
Sounds like another great Maria Dunn CD. I’ll be getting my copy as soon as I can.
