'Art Of The Song' Co-Founder Channels Mother Jones

Oct 19, 2019


  Women's Focus 10/19 12p: "Art of the Song" co-founder Vivian Nesbitt is bringing a one-woman musical show "Mother Jones In Heaven" to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The show was written by activist, organizer and songwriter Si Kahn and includes 12 original songs.

Mary Mother Jones was a legendary labor organizer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who fought for better working conditions and fair pay for miners, mill workers and child laborers. A West Virginia judge once called her the most dangerous woman in America for ability to get workers to walk out on strike.

“Mother Jones in Heaven” celebrates the life of Jones as she looks back over her controversial history. Nesbitt performs the show, accompanied by her husband John Dillon.
