Lovisa Samuelsson, along with her mother Pia Samuelsson and uncle Rolf Hägglund, perform her song "En Minut (Till Joe Hill)" during Joe Hill Centennial Celebration in Sugar House Park on Sept. 5, 2015. They are descendants of Joe Hill's brother, Efraim Hägglund. The concert was organized by the Joe Hill Organizing Committee as a way to honor the life and legacy of the labor icon who was executed nearly 100 years ago on November 19, 1915. The song represents the final minute of Hill's life. The guitar Lovisa is playing belonged to folk singer Utah Phillips and has some of Joe Hill's ashes in it.
