Mary Chapin featured on The 78 Project


4th September 2013

In August of last year, Mary Chapin recorded a special rendition of “The Water Is Wide” for The 78 Project  as part of their documentary journey across America. 

The 78 Project pairs musicians with the recording technology of the early 20th century. With just one microphone, an authentic 1930′s Presto direct-to-acetate disk recorder, and one blank lacquer disc, musicians are given a single take to cut a record anywhere they choose.

The 78 Project visited Mary Chapin at the 2012 Philadelphia Folk Festival where they captured this performance. To listen to this unique acetate record, visit The 78 Project.
