602233_10151450535411288_2103913407_nThe Newport Folk Festival is back! The festivities kick off on Friday July 26th at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI and Performer will be there again this year to cover the well rounded line-up.

We’re particularly excited to see Hey Marseilles, The Felice Brothers and are eager for return of Spirit Family Reunion. Big name acts like Feist, Beck and The Avett Brothers will be respectively headlining each night and there will be a heavy dose of folk, bluegrass and Americana with some New Orleans brass and gospel thrown in for good measure.

Must see acts include Trombone Shorty, JD McPhereson, The Milk Carton Kids, Phosphorescent, Michael Kiwanuka and Father John Misty, to name a few.  You can view the full schedule and line up here: http://www.newportfolkfest.net/doc/NewportFolk-2013schedule.pdf

Stay tuned to Performer and look for full coverage of the this year’s festival  in the August issue!
