Music Dedicated to Sacco and Vanzetti
We are glad to present (space permitting) music dedicated to the memory and the struggle of Sacco and Vanzetti. We encourage musicians to send us their original work regarding this matter. In the case of published and available material for distribution we might include a few representative songs from the album and point the reader to the place where they can obtain the album, if available. The struggle and the ultimate assassination by the state of Sacco and Vanzetti on August 23, 1927 has inspired musicians to write songs about them throughout the world. We know that they continue to inspire musicians today.
