Friday, February 10, Factory Maids, Sheffield
In the early 1800s the power loom disrupted the way fabric had always been made, and who had made it.
Diane explores the revolutionary changes millwork brought to the lives of women and men alike.
We hear of the early days in Lowell and the Bread & Roses strike of 1912, which united workers
who spoke dozens of languages in a common quest for a decent working conditions.
As a descendant of immigrant millworkers on both sides of her family, Diane is honored
to present songs that capture both despair and hope as newcomers sought a better life.
