Legendary bluegrass singer Hazel Dickens passed away this April after a lifetime fighting for social justice in Appalachia. Her legend lives on as hundreds mobilize for the March on Blair Mountain, a five-day, fifty-mile action calling for an end to mountaintop removal, strengthened labor rights, and investment in sustainable jobs. Join us for a special night of music honoring Hazel and those who will walk in her footsteps during the March on Blair Mountain.
