Organizer/Author
LaborFest is proud to open this year’s LaborFest commemoration of the 1934 San Francisco General Strike with musician Ry Cooder on guitars and his son Joachim Cooder on percussion.
Ry has played a seminal role in artistic expression and his contributions are not only in his music but also in his support of musicians around the world. His work in bringing together the album The Buena Vista Social Club, later made into a film, brought the tremendous musicians of Cuba to the world and helped break the information blockade that the US puts on Cuba every day.
Tickets: $25
