Performers include Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Tracy Bonham, Joan Osborne, The Felice Brothers, The Horseflies, and Ida. The acts will be interspersed between speakers and projected film and photographs. Singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant, who will also be performing says, “I’m a life-long resident of rural New York and I’m terrified of what may happen to my home state if hydraulic fracturing begins.” Additionally, there will be speakers including scientists, journalists, politicians, and activists.
