Joe Hill Roadshow

by Shelby Bottom Duo

A lively acoustic collection of songs by labor icon Joe Hill, the precursor of Woody Guthrie & Bob Dylan. Hill was executed by firing squad on trumped up murder charges in 1915 in Salt Lake City, Utah but his songs of hope remain relevant today.

Album Notes
Nashville based Shelby Bottom Duo (Michael August and Nell Levin) formed the "formidable" Shelby Bottom String Band in 2008. The Duo continues the band's tradition of entertaining, irreverent social commentary and humor. Their repertoire includes originals like "East Nashville Rag", the title cut of the band's CD, "Displacement Blues", named by the Tennessean as "Nashville's newest social justice anthem" and "Fat and Bald", an audience favorite about life's unintended consequences. They also delight listeners with obscure, quirky songs that deserve a wider audience.

"Whether waxing nostalgic about bygone days or lamenting the contemporary scourge of mountain top removal, the new-fashioned old-time music of the Shelby Bottom Duo is awash in humanity, humor and insight." Bill Friskics-Warren, contributor to New York Times and Washington Post.
