Salt of the Earth Tour New Mexico

Statewide, NM – FREE LABOR DAY WEEKEND CONCERT TOUR

The New Mexico Federation of Labor (NMFL) along with a collation of business and community groups presents THE SALT OF THE EARTH TOUR FREE – ALL AGES, SIX CITY TOUR this Labor Day Weekend.

Beginning in Southern New Mexico, in Las Cruces and in Truth or Consequences on Saturday August 31, the midpoint of the festivities will be held in Albuquerque and Corrales on Sunday September 1, with the full culmination of the traveling festival landing in Santa Fe on Monday September 2, ending in a finale blowout that night in Taos!

The six city, three-day event featuring performance art, poetry and music, will bring the true meaning of Labor Day to the people of New Mexico in a fun family environment.

Jon Hendry, President of NMFL said, “Many people think of Labor Day as just another three day holiday, but it’s our chance to celebrate working people and labor’s contribution to this country. We want to entertain and educate people.”

The Joe West Trio headlines “The Salt of the Earth Tour,” performing spirited renditions of classic workers’ songs important to labor history and tradition. Albuquerque’s Poet Laureate, Hakim Bellamy brings his exquisite style of social justice oriented lyrical poetry to new audiences on the tour. Local street performers of all styles and special musical guests will create a festive environment for all to enjoy. The seminal New Mexican Labor film, “Salt of the Earth” will screen at each tour stop. Local progressive groups will be present at each event to connect with each other and with new audiences about their work.

It’s time to “Rock” & talk while New Mexico talent and artists work to entertain and engage YOU!
