The 1861 Project has come a long way since the initial conception, writing, recording, and release of “Volume 1: From Soldiers to Foot Soldiers.”
One of the most gratifying aspects of the project’s evolution has been the opportunity to perform the material live before a variety of audiences over past year.
Now we have captured that live performance in an easily downloadable in-concert presentation of songs from the CD, augmented with documentary footage and interviews that provide an intriguing look into the project’s creation.
The 1861 Project Live, with its unique mix of music and history, offers something refreshingly new: thought provoking narration by Executive Producer Paul Schatzkin, whose introductions place each song in a compelling historical context.
The combination of music, interviews, and narration gives the video its own dramatic pace, and brings The 1861 Project ever closer to its original vision as “an historical novel put to music.”
The 1861 Project Live is available as an easy-to-download file for only $5.99, or in combination with the CD and/or CD download via the store widgets below.
