With a host of traditional instruments and carefully crafted lyrics, the Low Tide Drifters create original roots-based songs that reflect the struggles of working people in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Influenced by Woody Guthrie, Utah Phillips, Alistair Hulett, and other socially conscious folksingers from all over the world, they bring a respect for the past and concern for the future to their music. Since forming in 2007, the Low Tide Drifters have played everywhere from large folk festivals to radical, worker-owned coffee houses. They have also performed at dozens of benefit concerts for human rights organizations, labor unions, and activist groups. "Every Stitch," the band's rallying cry for labor rights in the garment industry, was featured on the first episode of RadioLabour's GET UP! show (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHeF2-jU8qw). Other songs by the Low Tide Drifters have been played on numerous radio programs and featured on websites such as Union Songs, An Online Collection (http://unionsong.com/).
