The Labor Heritage Foundation emailed a very nice tribute to Anne Feeney (1951-2021)
Anne Feeney was a passionate labor singer-songwriter, activist, and hell-raiser, who was an important part of the Labor Heritage Foundation family. She was a mainstay at our Great Labor Arts Exchanges, and performed at our annual fundraiser. In 2005 LHF presented her with our Joe Hill award for lifetime achievement in the field of labor culture.
In her ferocious and celebratory way of fighting the bosses, she touched many hearts. We will miss her energy and her outspoken commitment to social justice and union solidarity.
Here are a few of the songs she sang:
Have You Been to Jail for Justice
We're Nursing As Fast As We Can
The Parting Glass
Obituaries have appeared in Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Washington Post and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
