La Farge Lawton Memorial Library

Throughout our history, Wisconsin’s people have sung songs while they work.  What can we learn from these songs? Historic and contemporary field and studio recordings of Irish and French Canadian lumberjacks, Finnish and Croatian miners, Potawatomi and Norwegian ironworkers, Italian and Mexican farmhands, and Polish and Hmong factory workers illustrate the folksongs of Wisconsin’s workers.
