Harry Stamper


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

North Bend longshoreman Harry Stamper is keeping the art of union folk songs alive. One of his songs, “We just come to work here; we don’t come to die” is nationally known. He sings this song and a few of his other compositions: old fashioned protest songs with a modern twist.

First Broadcast: 2002
