Live performances from The Independence Project

Six artists (Rebecca Martin, Larry John McNally, Jane Kelly Williams, Dorothy Scott, Frank Tedesso and Tim Hill) all belonging to this collective crowded into WFMU's Main studio for an afternoon of round-robin performances. According to Rebecca Martin, as taken from the Indepence Project's website, "I realized that by putting a small group of
developing artists on the road and pooling our resources we could create a focused, dynamic tour with realistic goals; a platform for ourselves and for all developing artists in the future called The Independence Project." At this time, they present two groups of touring threesomes working with The Independence Project, with the hope of expanding to include other groups in the future. Each song's main artist is represented on this list by their initials, with others joining in on the song as they felt moved to do so. A lovely afternoon of song was enjoyed by all.
