I wear many hats.. with several Union pins.. In the IWW we have a saying.. Dual Carder.. a member that is a member of a craft trade union and a member of the IWW.. I am a Quad Carder... by free association, I am a Wobbly.. By business I am a Teamster.. but I am also a Rank and File activist.. so I am a TDU Teamster for Democratic Union member.. but.. I am a Co-Chair with Railroad Workers United.. invested.. in Union!

Folk music belongs to the people.. I am a folk musician in the sense that my tunes reflect the issues of the day based on a model from the past.. nothing has changed really, just the way folks gather.. community.. I write tunes about long work hours.. union contracts and battles.. Elections. Union Democracy.. Standing up! in a Union way.. together.. us Folks.. in a community! People.. I live by this Credo from Paul Robeson...

We who labor in the arts, we who are singers, we who are actors, we who are artists. We must remember that we come from the people, our strength comes from the people and we must serve the people and be a part of them.
