Theme: Working in the Coalmine – Coal mining, traditionally, has been one of the most environmentally destructive sources of fuel. As well, coal mining has been one of the most dangerous occupations with untold numbers of miners being killed over the decades in both large-scale disasters and smaller accidents. Coal mining has also been one of the most dangerous occupations in terms of long-term health effects in the way that coal dust eventually destroys the lungs of miners. As well, the coal industry has been one of the most exploitative of its workers. The songs on this show address those issues.
