Joe Hill’s Funeral Reenactment

Bucky will be playing Joe Hill tunes as part of the reenactment of the funeral of Joe Hill which occurred 100 years ago this date in Chicago. Hill was executed by firing squad 100 years ago on 11/19/1915, his body was shipped by rail to Chicago for the funeral procession and he was cremated here. The event will be as complete reenactment as possible with guests the likes of Jon Langford, Sally Timms, and others. This one won’t come around again folks, so come out and celebrate Joe Hill – because he deserves it.
